Funso Ojo (born 28 August 1991 in Antwerp) is a Belgian footballer who plays for Dutch Eredivisie side Willem II.[1][2]

Career[edit]

Before PSV, he played for the youth sides of Olse Merksem and Germinal Beerschot. In a friendly match against amateur side HVCH on 19 May 2007, Ojo made his debut as a B-Junior in the PSV first team. Then coach, Ronald Koeman, sent Ojo on the field after 60 minutes.

Ojo made his official debut for the Eindhoven side in the 2008–09 season, when he played against Jong PSV in the KNVB Cup on 23 September 2008. Actually, he was taken from the youth side to the first squad, so he played against his former team. Ojo played his first Eredivisie match for PSV on 5 May 2009 against Willem II.[3][2]

On 1 September 2011, Ojo made his debut for Belgium's U21 team.
