"First I would like to thank my president and my managers for their trust in me,” Evouna told the club’s website.

“We can see that Konyaspor has grown up as a club in terms of brand value in recent years and I want to make very serious contributions to it.

“I did a little training with my team. But I already did my own work. I'm 65-70 percent (ready) now. Of course, joining is a different thing, but both the beauty of the city and the beauty of the facilities will make improvements in terms of conditioning, I feel much more comfortable here.”
