Watford new striker, Dapo Mebude has come out to say that Odion Ighalo influenced his decision to join the club. He recently revealed that Odion was definitely one of the players who attracted him to the EPL.
According to him, the truth is that Watford is a massive football club that he has been following in the EPL for a while and he would love to be part of its history.
He added that he learns from footballers like Raheem Sterling and Ronaldo De Lima while still trying to stand out on the pitch.
His words, “[Watford are] a massive club, I have watched them in the Premier League for a few years.”
“I have been a fan of the Premier League and watched players like Troy Deeney, and Odion Ighalo who is a countryman of mine, so there are a lot of things that attracted me.”
“I like to take bits from different players’ games. Obviously, I want to be myself but I take parts from Raheem Sterling, Ronaldo [the original]… but I want to be myself and hopefully one day, people can look up to me and say they want to be like me.”
“I think it is important I bring what I can do to the table first and foremost, and then every single day I am going to be learning and taking as much as I can from the likes of Troy Deeney, [Ismaïla] Sarr, Andre Gray. [This is] because they are top players and I want to get to that level,”
“I do not want to change what I was brought in for but I’m going to learn every single day and take as much as possible and add it to my game as well.”
“I like to get in behind, I like to score goals, create chances, and beat my man [one-on-one]. I play to excite the fans,”
“I am comfortable at left-wing or striker. Anywhere across the front line, I like to express myself and I’ll work for the team. I am not too fussed about where I am going to play across the front but I am just excited to get going, playing and seeing what I can do.”
