Why we signed Chidera Ejuke – Sevilla Sporting Director

Sevilla’s Sporting Director, Víctor Orta, has revealed why the club went all out to sign Super Eagles winger, Chidera Ejuke. He said Ejuke represents everything they look for in a winger for Sevilla.

The La Liga club on Monday announced the signing of Ejuke who formerly played for Russian side CSKA Moscow, on a three-year contract. Ejuke is their first signing for the upcoming 2024/25 season.

Ejuke was introduced to fans and media on Wednesday and Orta during a media session, insisted that the Nigerian is exactly what the club needs in a winger.

Orta also said they’ve been following Ejuke since his move to Norway’s Vålerenga in 2017 from Gombe United in the Nigerian Premier Football League. He added that Ejuke perfectly fits the profile of what manager Quique Sánchez Flores wants in a winger.

“We knew Ejuke since he arrived in Europe and we were surprised by his loan in November. We discovered that he was free, we followed him weekly and we were convinced by his personality and all the information we needed.

“We also spoke with the coach (Quique Sánchez Flores), who gives a lot of importance to the wingers, to speed, etc.; and these are characteristics that Chidera has. He presses well after the loss of a ball as well and we had to move quickly because he was free.”

“Ejuke is very valid for Sevilla due to all his conditions. This year he has made a huge defensive leap. We have spoken with people who have described him very well personally and I think he suits the coach like a glove. He faces, he has speed, dribble, and reach the area.

“I would be excited about a lively team and that is why we want that model of a player like Ejuke.”
