“For me, it was important to come to a team that really believes in what it is looking for. City are a new club that only came into place two years ago. The most important person that made it possible for me to come here was McCarthy,” Obinna told Cape Times.
It was at the English Premier League side West Ham United where his friendship with McCarthy began as the pair formed a deadly partnership
“He is someone I respect as a person and I have a good relationship with him. In fact, the club as a whole wanted me to come, and that is the main purpose why I am playing my football at City,” Obinna said.
“The PSL is improving, and it has been improving year after year. You can see that in the awareness it has created in players from other countries, even from Europe, who are keen to come over. With that, it has improved the quality and it is this aspect that the PSL needs to emphasise more. It is getting to a level now where the competition and the quality of the game are getting higher each year,” Obinna concluded.
