Jamiu Alimi pleased with Akwa United welcome

The defender joined the Promise Keepers recently and has expressed his delight at how he was received at the Uyo based team

Akwa United new signing, Jamiu Alimi has revealed he enjoyed his welcome in Uyo but claims he is not expecting to start against MFM in a Week 19 Nigeria Professional Football League tie.

The former defender completed a mid-season move from Kano Pillars and he had his first training with the Promise Keepers on Monday. 

“It is a pleasant one for me, I am glad that I've made this move because it's what I've been waiting for, to help myself and my career it's the right time to move,” Alimi told Goal.

“I received a warm welcome on arrival at Akwa United. I know a couple of players there but everyone did welcome me well.

“I expect a good game against MFM, the target in this match is the three points.”

“I had my first training on Monday but the coach will decide if I will be on the match day squad but regardless of what happens I will wish the team well and cheer on for the three points."
