The Naze Millionaires handler has thumbed up the decision of the ex-Enugu Rangers striker to take his game abroad to the Tunisian League

Heartland coach, Ere Dokubo has hailed the decision of Christian Pyagbara to sign for AS Gabes of Tunisia from Enugu Rangers.

The tactician believes that the striker’s switch to the Tunisian league will be a stepping stone to Europe.

He tasked the former Enyimba and Akwa United attacker to remain level-headed and strives to be hard working to ensure that he makes that appreciable impact at his new club and hit the ground running as fast as possible.

“I see it as a good move for him but I had expected him to sign for a club in Europe,” Dokubo told Goal.

“I want to encourage him to keep working hard and ensure that he makes a meaningful impact at his new club so that it will be the ideal step for him to get a move to Europe. I have watched him closely and he is a player I know that he will give a good account of himself wherever he goes.

“This is the time for him to display a very humble spirit and try to continue to learn the rudiments and the doings at his new club. He needs to have a good start with his new club and I pray he stays injury free.”

Pyagbara who was also an ex-player of defunct Sharks FC recently completed his move to Tunisian Ligue I side, AS Gabes and he has since resumed pre-season activities with his new club.

AS Gabes are trying to rebuild ahead of the new season after finishing last season in 10th position out of 14 teams.
