Osahon "Macky" Eboigbe (born September 11, 1989) is a Nigerian professional footballer. He currently plays for Vaasan Palloseura.



For the 2007–2008 season, Eboigbe was loaned from the Blackburn Rovers Youth Academy to Belgian first division side Cercle Brugge. The main reason for this move was because Eboigbe was due to turn 18 soon after, and as a consequence would be needing documents necessary to be eligible to play in English football as a non-EU player, documents which he would not receive. In Belgium, these regulations in football are far less strict.

Dwight Wille, who was also in the Rovers' Youth Academy in 2006–07, stated that in his view, Osahon Eboigbe was one of the most promising players in the Blackburn Rovers U-19 team. Macky made his début for Cercle on December 8, 2007, against Exc. Mouscron. Cercle won the match 3–0.

First was announced that Eboigbe would also be part of the Cercle Brugge squad for the 2008–09 season, but eventually Eboigbe went on trial with OH Leuven and was loaned out for 1 season to the Belgian second division side. His loan was extended with another season after 2008–09. He is known as a pacy striker.

Eboigbe currently plays for Vaasan Palloseura.

Personal life

Osahon Eboigbe also has an older brother, Semi Eboigbe, who is a professional basketballer, currently playing for Lynn Fury.
