After revealing the tortuous route they had to take to sign Nigerian striker, Emmanuel Emenike, West Ham Chiefs have confessed that they are keen to see their January recruit deliver the goals he was brought in for.
West Ham United’s Joint-Chairman David Sullivan exudes confidence that Emenike will score bags of goals for his new club.
“We hope he (Emenike) will bring goals and we have an option to sign him at the end of the season,” Sullivan told his club’s official website.
Sullivan and club secretary Andrew Pincher worked hard to get the deal done after having to negotiate with both Fenerbahce and Al-Ain where Emenike has been on loan in the United Arab Emirates this season.
“Our manager knows him from Turkey & Russia and says he is a very good player. He is very fast and you can never have enough goals or pace in any team.
“It took two weeks of tortuous negotiations and hard work by myself and our club secretary Andrew Pincher to get the player to the club. It was one of the most difficult deals we have ever done as we were dealing with two clubs not one.
“I would publicly like to thank Andrew, as he really is an unsung hero of the club, for all his hard work on this transfer, all the other transfers we have done in the last few years and the dozens we tried to do and failed with.”
Emenike arrived at the Boleyn Ground on Sunday and is now hoping to be a big success in the Premier League this season.
