While speaking to the club TV, the former Real Betis forward acknowledged that the season will be tough but assured that the team will be ready for the task.

” I’m here to just work, it’s not going to be easy but I’m here to make the team play better and win trophies. We will try to play good football and win games, it’s the results that matter.

“We will make sure that we pick the best and give every player the opportunity to perform.

“By God’s grace, we will have a good season.

The team is presently in closed camping exercise in Omoku getting ready for the new season.
