New signing at Watford of England, Samuel Kalu has admitted that he is eager to justify from the word go the £3m transfer fee The Hornets paid to snatch him from Girondins-Bordeaux of France.
Megasportsarena.com reports that, although he admitted it is a team game and he cannot achieve success without success from other players in the squad, Kalu pledged to give his very best to achieve his targets.
He disclosed that he has already taken a look at The Hornets’ remaining matches for the season and, though they look doomed for relegation, the product of Jos-based Golden Sports Academy (GSA) stressed that they can beat the drop.
He reasoned further that the array and quality of players in the squad and the quality of the management they have at Vicarage Road has convinced him that Watford will not be relegated at the end of this season.
The 24-year-old versatile forward, who arrived at Watford on Wednesday in a three-and-half year deal worth £3m, affirmed that he wants to achieve big things with Watford and admitted he has a strong desire to excel in the English Premier League.
Kalu retorted: “When I heard about the opportunity I was feeling grateful. It’s one of my dreams to play in the Premier League, this is what I want. I will be here to give my best.
“I spoke to M’Baye Niang, he was my teammate in Bordeaux, he told me a lot about the Premier League and he was here before, he told me it’s a great club.
“He said the Premier League is the best league in the world, so I should grab my chance. I see the Premier League as more intense, powerful, I see it as the strongest league in the world.
“With my experience from the leagues I have played in, it’s quite similar with Ligue 1 and the Premier League.
“It’s amazing, every game is like a final, playing against the top clubs in the world. I want to achieve big things with this great club, I know there is a lot to give and I want to give my best.
“I’ve already seen the fixtures until the end of the season, with the quality of the players the team has I think we can do good things in the second half of the season.”
