Super Eagles’ midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo has vowed to give one hundred per cent to ensure his new club, Stoke City returns to Premier League action, AOIFootball.com reports.
The highly-rated attacking midfielder became Coach Gary Rowett’s first capture of the summer last month after the Potters fought off stern competition from a plethora of clubs all courting the 22-year-old’s signature.
Speaking exclusively to the club’s website, Etebo revealed that a decision on his future would have been made after the World Cup had he not been so impressed by the vision and ambition of the Stoke City hierarchy.
“It is important for us to do well this season, to make sure that everything goes well in the future; but I know how difficult a challenge this will be. I believe that we are going to make this a great season. I am going to give my best and hopefully, that will be enough for the club.
“I feel great. I am finally here and I really appreciate the support and the welcome that everybody has given me. Everybody needs a break after a tournament like the World Cup, but my mind has been here. I knew that I was coming to Stoke City and I was excited about it,” the Nigerian said.
Etebo caught the eye of many with a string of outstanding performances for Nigeria in Russia, especially his superb outing against South American giants Argentina which earned him the Man-of-the-Match Award.
