He has 10 appearances and 3 goals in the Europa League and 2 appearances in the Champions League qualifiers. Welcome to Genoa, David!” Genoa wrote while announcing the Nigerian.

He’ll be eager to make an immediate impact in his debut match against Empoli this Saturday, proving that the streets of Port Harcourt can indeed lead to the glittering stages of European football.
