DONE DEAL: Emenike to join Al Ain
Nigerian forward Emmanuel Emenike has reportedly agreed to join Dubai based club Al Ain from Turkish giants Fenerbache.
The move which has gathered pace is yet to be confirmed by his parent club in Turkey but there are strong indications that the striker is the replacement for the departing Asamoah Gyan.
In an interview with African Football, Emenike confirmed the transfer expressing his gratitude to Fenerbache and promised goals in the UAE.
“Being a Fenerbahce player is something I will cherish for the rest of my career. Now, I have to move because I need a new challenge in my career and leaving now is the best decision taken,” Emenike told African Football.
“I am using this moment to express my gratitude to the club Fenerbahce and everybody who believes in me in one way or the other. Fenerbahce is a great club and I wish them all the best in the new season.”
“I am looking forward to new challenge in UAE, as well as to get more playing time under my belt and score many goals. For every striker, it is important to score goals and I am already looking forward to that challenge.”
