Former Super Eagles coach Adegboye Onigbinde has commended the late wife of Teslim ‘Thunder’ Balogun as the family celebrates her 18th year remembrance.
Onigbinde said Mulikat  motivated the  late Nigeria striker  during his active days.

He said, “Balogun wouldn’t have become so legendary if he never got the support of his wife, who consistently attended matches played by her husband both for the national team and his club. She made ‘Thunder’ a great asset to the nation. Balogun himself was full of humour, humility, discipline and he was a good mixer who also showed his dexterity in coaching.”


The former NFF  Technical Director  added,  “In 1958, when she (Mulikat) received a plea from the then Premier of the Western Region, Chief ObafemiAwolowo, who asked her to persuade her husband to dump his British club, Queens Park Rangers, to return to Nigeria to assist the West Rovers  to  win the  Challenge Cup, she convinced her husband and he returned to help the club win the title.”
