Former Akwa United first choice goalkeeper, Femi Thomas has told Goal.com that he decided to join Enyimba for next season because he wants to face new challenges.

The former junior international noted that the new challenge will see him play for a big team in Africa for the first time in his career.

"This is the first time I will be playing for a big team. This is a new challenge I want for myself because I need to turn around my football career.

"Enyimba is big in all ramifications and I would say that this is the first time that I will be appearing in the colours of a club that is ambitious and wants to win at all times.

"I may have played for a lot of clubs, but I believe I am just starting my career. Since I started my football career, I have not played for any big club.

"I started with Zamfara United. From there, I moved to Nasarawa United and later joined Ocean Boys. Akwa United was my last club, so you can understand when I said that my career is just starting.

"I was not pressured into choosing Enyimba among the four clubs that needed my services. I knew exaclty what I wanted and I am ready to give my best when the new season begins.

"I have also seen the calibre of players that the club signed and I am happy that we have a good squad to challenge for all the titles next season.

"I want to do my best because I know that it requiries hard work and determination to succeed in a club like Enyimba. I know that everything will work well for us because we want to return to the continent," Thomas said.

Enyimba placed fourth last season with 54 points.
