Marvin Ogunjimi (born 12 October 1987) is a Belgian professional footballer of Nigerian descent who plays as a forward and is currently playing for MVV Maastricht. Until 2011, he played for the Belgian national team and has obtained 7 caps.

Club career

Genk

Born in Mechelen, Ogunjimi made his professional debut with Racing Genk during the 2005–06 season. In 2007, he went on loan, playing for RKC Waalwijk. While with Waalwijk he appeared in 27 games and scored 10 goals. Upon returning to Genk, Ogunjimi became a prominent player for the Belgian side helping the club to the domestic title in the 2010–11 season. In the Summer of 2011 Marvin Ogunjimi was supposed to be transferred last minute to RCD Mallorca but the papers arrived 7 minutes too late at FIFA so the transfer was refused.

Mallorca

On 14 November 2011 Mallorca announced Ogunjimi's move to their side. On 31 August 2012, he joined Standard Liège on a loan deal. In mid-February 2014, Ogunjimi signed for the New England Revolution on trial until the end of the month.

Strømsgodset

On 6 June 2014, Ogunjimi signed for Strømsgodset. The new club reportedly paid a small fee to Mallorca.[2] He got his first match against Steaua in the second round of Champions League qualifications on 16 July 2014. On 2 August the same year, he scored in his home league debut match against Sogndal IL, which ended 1–1. He scored another three goals in the next three matches. Following this, he struggled under manager David Nielsen, and went 11 matches without scoring in the league. When new manager Bjørn Petter Ingebretsen took over, he put his faith in Ogunjimi, and the Belgian finally found the net on 21 June 2015. He scored four goals in three matches in the league, and one in the Europa League qualifications in June and July 2015, before he got injured in the second leg of the first qualifying round of the Europa League. On 14 July 2015, Strømsgodset announced that Ogunjimi had torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and would miss the rest of the 2015 season.[3]

Suwon FC

Ogunjimi signed for Suwon FC on 12 February 2016[4] and was loaned from July 2016 to Ratchaburi Mitr Phol. Upon return his contract was terminated by mutual consent as Suwon FC had suffered relegation.[5]

Skënderbeu Korçë

On 1 February 2017, Ogunjimi signed for Skënderbeu Korçë until the end of December 2017.[6] He made his first Albanian Superliga appearance one month later on 4 March in team's 1–1 home draw versus Teuta Durrës, playing the last 27 minutes as a substitute.[7] His first and only start would come only on the final matchday against Partizani Tirana, playing for 60 minutes as Skënderbeu drew 2–2 at home, failing to retain the Albanian Superliga for the first time in five years.[8] Following the end of 2016–17, where the team failed to win the league and was defeated in the Albanian Cup final by Tirana,[9] Ogunjimi was released by the club after failing to score in 7 appearances, including 6 in league, which only 1 was as a starter.[10]

Okzhetpes

On 17 June 2017, FC Okzhetpes announced the signing of Ogunjimi.[11]

International career

On 8 October 2010, he made his international debut for Belgium against Kazakhstan in Astana, coming on at half-time and scoring twice in a 2–0 victory.[12] Only for days later, in his second appearance against Austria, Ogunjimi started and scored the tempolary 3–3 in the 87th minute, as the match finished in a thirlling 4–4.[13]
