The Super Eagle teamed up with the former Nigerian champions making him the fifth shot-stopper on their books

Ikechukwu Ezenwa says he knows he must work hard if he is to become considered for Enyimba's starting spot.

The shot-stopper made the move to join Paul Aigbogun's side from fellow Nigerian top-flight side, FC IfeanyiUbah ahead of the upcoming 2017-18 campaign.

And with Ghana's Fatau Dauda, Theophilus Afelokhai, Friday Achimugu and Izundu Njoku already in the side, the Super Eagles goalkeeper knows competition for places will be intense.

“I am in Enyimba to add to the efforts of other goalkeepers in the team. I am not here to lord myself over others. I know we have very good goalkeepers and that the competition for the first spot will be intense,” Ezenwa told Goal.

“We are in Kano to compete and I am certain if I am given an opportunity I will do my best. I have tried to keep myself fit by engaging the service of a private goalkeeper trainer. I am fit and ready to help the team."

He further disclosed that it has always been a lifelong dream to play for the People’s Elephant.

“I will say I see it as a privilege to be with Enyimba at this point in time. I have always loved to join the club even before now. I see it as a dream come true for me and I will do my best to ensure that the club rank among the best.

“I tried in the past to catch the attention of the club but I am certain I have come in at the right time. I will like to continue my development here,” he stated.

Ezenwa is yet to man the post for Enyimba in the ongoing pre-season tournament in Kano
