After leaving the 36 Lion FC academy, Tijani embarked on a journey that included loan spells at various Czech clubs such as Trinec, Karvina, and Taborsko. However, it was his successful 2022/2023 season at Taborsko in the Fortuna Liga that truly showcased his abilities, with 11 league goals and one in the cup.
With his sights set on European matches and the support of the fans, Muhammed Tijani aims to seize this opportunity and carve out a notable career at Slavia Prague. The young Nigerian striker is determined to make his mark, not only for personal success but also as a testament to the talent coming out of the 36 Lion FC academy.
Tijani’s Move to Slavia Prague
Former Nigeria U-20 striker Muhammed Tijani has secured a long-term deal with Czech Republic giants Slavia Prague. The 22-year-old, who recently transferred from Banik Ostrava, is determined to surpass the achievements of his fellow compatriots who have previously represented the club. Having honed his skills at the Lagos-based academy, 36 Lion FC, Tijani is eager to make his mark as part of the Red and Whites.
Impressive Goal-Scoring Record
Tijani’s goal-scoring prowess caught the attention of Slavia Prague, as he netted eleven goals for Banik Ostrava last season. His impressive performances led to a contract with Slavia Prague that extends until June 2028. Currently training with the team, Tijani is seen as a direct replacement for Peter Olayinka, another Nigerian striker from 36 Lions FC, who left an indelible mark during his four years at the club, tallying an impressive 50 goals and 26 assists in 182 appearances.
Ambitious Goals and Inspirations
Tijani embraces the challenge that lies ahead and sets ambitious goals for himself. Expressing his enthusiasm, he states his desire to become the top scorer in the league one day. Tijani also acknowledges the influence of Igoh, a former teammate from their youth team, who holds a special place in his heart. Furthermore, he recognizes Peter Olayinka as a source of inspiration not only for himself but also for other Nigerian footballers. Tijani aspires to achieve a similar level of success and make a lasting impact at Slavia Prague.
