Nigeria: Enyimba's Abalogu Dreaming Glory

Barely twenty-four hours after completing his signing-on procedures for Enyimba FC of Aba, Andrew Abalogu is already dreaming of the Nigeria Premier League and the Federation Cup titles.

Abalogu, who agreed to move to the club from Abubakar Saraki (ABS) FC of Ilorin, passed his medical test on Nov. 8 and signed for the six-time Nigerian champions on Monday.

"This is going to be a good challenge for me. Enyimba is a very big club and I can see the number of talented players that are here.

"So, it's going to be very tough to get into the starting lineup, but I'm not worried. I chose to come here because I believe this is the right club for me because I want to win trophies.

"I know that playing for Enyimba will be good for my career. So, I'll work hard to get a first team shirt and score the goals that will help us to succeed.

"I want to win the league and the Federation Cup and I know that Enyimba is the place where this can be achieved easily.

"I am happy with my decision to come here and I want to do well and help the club to win everything," he said.

The 20-year-old had an impressive 2011/2012 season, helping ABS to escape relegation and scoring nine goals along the way to a Rookie of the Year LBA award.

Abalogu, an indigene of Abia, has played for the Abia Warriors.
