Former RSC Anderlecht of Belgium wonder boy, Imoh Ezekiel has dropped lower on the glamour cards of Nigeria’s array of foreign-based players, as he will now line out in United Arab Emirates with Abu Dhabi-based Al-Jazira, but the 26-year-old attacker wants to make the best of it, megasportsarena.com reports.
Rather than feel disillusioned that he is again playing outside central Europe, the former Super Eagles’ invitee and ex-under-23 national team, Olympic Eagles star, recalled that he played previously in the middle East and he wants to use that experience to get the best impact at his new base.
This comes after the product of 36 Lion FC of Lagos was released from the remaining one year of his contract by KV Kortrijk of Ezekiel, who has been handed jersey Belgium and the petit winger-cum-striker, who had played with Al-Arabi of Qatar for three years before returning to Europe, says he is determined to excel again.
number 39 in his new team, declared: “To join a club of Al Jazira’s stature is something which really excites me. I know the league well and have watched a lot of football in the Middle East so it is great to be part of this club and in a region that is so passionate about football.
“When I was speaking with Mads (Davidsen) and the head coach, they told me their ambition for the club and I can’t wait to get started for the season, as soon as I arrived at the stadium, I see the Pride of Abu Dhabi, so it is special to be part of this.”
