Forward Chinedu Udechukwu has spoken on his decision to join Enyimba Football Club of Aba from Katsina United.
Udechukwu joined Enyimba following an impressive stint with Katsina United where he finished as one of the top scorers in the NPFL last season.
The forward, who has signed a deal that will keep him at Enyimba for three seasons, is confident that his decision to pitch his tent with seven-time Nigerian champions represented an improvement in his career.
“There was a need for me to take the next step in my career,” Udechukwu said.
“You know, in anything we do, we need to always make progress, so I wanted a bigger challenge.
“I know that my move to Enyimba is the right decision for my career and I want to put in my best to ensure that I help the team achieve big. My aim is to do better than I did at my previous club.”
Adapting to a new environment is usually a challenge for football players, but Udechukwu says the camaraderie at the club has made it easy for him to slot in.
“I like the welcome I’ve received at the club. The coaches and players have been very friendly and that has helped me settle easily.
“As a professional that I am, there’s the need to adapt and make this place my new home, and that is what my new team mates have been able to make me do.”
