Previously: The Nigerian came to Spain with Real Madrid, but was never able to make his debut with the first team. After two seasons in the club's reserves he joined SD Compostela, where he became a star. Ohen scored 68 goals between 1991 and 1998, and after a brief spell in Turkey that was marred by injury, returned for a final year with Compostela, scoring his final two goals for the club.

His achievements: He signed for the Galician outfit when they were managed by Fernando Castro Santos in Liga Adelante. With Ohen among their players, they played the 1994-95 season in Liga BBVA. With 70 goals, he is Compostela's all-time leading scorer.

After hanging up his boots: The forward was plagued by injury. After returning to Galicia for a year, he joined CD Leganés in Liga Adelante, which turned out to be his last year in Spain. His final playing days were spent with Julius Berger, in Nigeria in 2001-2002.

Did you know: Nusa Ohen stood out in the 1989 Youth World Cup with Nigeria. There he played alongside players who would make in in Europe such as Deportivo's Peter Rufai, and Finidi George, a Betis legend.
