Oghenekaro Etebo is pretty happy to have joined Stoke City this summer, but it doesn’t mean he’s forgetting the club he came from.
Having moved from Portuguese side Feirense on a €7.2m deal, the midfielder has left many friends at the Liga NOS side, and now promises to be following them in the next season.
Etebo has spoken to newspaper Record this week, with the chat being exclusively about his former club.
“Of course I’ll be the biggest Feirense fan here in England,” the player told Record. “I met some great people at the club.”
“I’m loving the UK, but I’m following what’s going on in Feirense every day. I was very happy with the first victory of the season.”
The reason why Record called Etebo in the first place was because of Tosin Kehinde.
His Nigerian compatriot is joining Feirense on a free move from Manchester United, and the newspaper wanted to know the Stoke player’s opinion on the move.
“The adaptation of a young Nigerian player, just as I was when I arrived, to a European league may not be easy, but I believe that Kehinde will be physically and mentally prepared for the Portuguese reality, even because he made his entire career in England.
“I believe he can succeed in Portugal, I see this change as a big step for him. Nuno Manta Santos is incredible, I believe he can help Kehinde a lot as he did with me. He knows how to make the best of the players, that’s one of his greatest qualities.”
