“It is an opportunity for me to make an impact when given the chance to play. I have to give thanks to God and keep working hard to prove my worth. I am really happy,” he added.

Agbenyenu saw full action on Friday when Munchen shared the spoils 1-1 with Jahn Regensburg in the first leg of the German Bundesliga II playoffs, as his side aim at avoiding relegation. The return leg is scheduled for May 30.
