Good morning People,
This morning we will feature on the Know our Players column, one of our new boys, Ebenezar Odeyemi.
His name probably is not the most popular or familiar among us Enyimba fans but he just got here, having been signed during the preseason from Kogi United.
Ebenezar was born on 15th September, 1991 and he hails from Osun State. Striker, right footed and with some power in his right foot, Ebenezar joined Enyimba almost a year after saying in an interview he would love to play for Enyimba. This of course was at a time when he was just finding his feet at his former club. For a club like ours that will barely look in your direction except you are firing on all cylinders, chances of his joining us at the time depended on raising his game and proving that he is not NNL quality.
This he did and finished as Kogi United’s top marksman last season. His exploits of course got the attention of some other Premier League clubs and in fact he was already on his way to Wikki Tourists when thedream phone call came, Enyimba was calling and of course the rest was history.
We we saw him perform at the Super Four Invitational, strength, good movement and pace in the three games he featured in,was enough to convince Coach Ikhana thats he’s got his man.
He needed to wait till Match Day 3 before making his debut for us- in the 1-0 win over Bayelsa United, 2 weeks ago. He also got a dream debut goal but for the woodwork late in the game.
It is is a good thing to see that the club has not only signed a quality player in Odeyemi but one who also is a fan and a daily reader of this blog.
We wish Ebenezar Odeyemi not only a fruitful season but a stay with us as well.
