Hyundai A-League coaches take note. Adebayo Akinfenwa can play…and he is available. Just hit him up on WhatsApp after he's been to Las Vegas!
The hulking striker – who's 100kg frame makes him look more like a rugby prop – added another chapter to his colourful career by starring at Wembley overnight.
Akinfenwa came off the bench with 15 minutes left and scored a goal as his AFC Wimbledon side beat Plymouth Argyle 2-0 to win promotion to England’s League One next season.
The 34-year-old striker is known as ‘The Beast’ – and it’s easy to see why, tipping the scales at more than 100kg..
But there’s more to his game than just size, scoring a stack of goals during his 12-year professional career in England’s lower leagues.
And this is where A-League clubs should take note. After helping Wimbledon secure promotion in the play-off final, the club announced they would be releasing him for next season.
"I think I'm technically unemployed, so any managers hit me up on the WhatsApp and get me a job," an entertaining and passionate Akinfenwa told Sky Sports after the match.
Akinfenwa and his Wimbledon teammates are set to celebrate their promotion with a trip to Las Vegas but once they have stopped partying, it could be worth trying to lure him Down Under.Would he be a success in the Hyundai A-League? What do you think?
