I feel this is the right environment for me to develop and grow into the right player I want to be. I have been involved in a number of practice games with the club and I felt the style of play was the right for me to blossom. They love to use the ball and I am comfortable in that kind of style.
The club has very good technically gifted players and competition here is real. Many players are on the National team and this speaks volumes for the kind of quality here.
I can’t wait to get started, repay the club for the faith they have had in me, fight for the badge and earn my spot on the first team.
I want to win trophies with the club, I want to make the fans happy and my family proud.
