Anthony Ujah working hard in pre-season to attain maximum fitness

14 July 2015, 07:51

Abuja - Anthony Ujah has netted four times for Werder Bremen since he started pre-season training with the Bundesliga side, but has admitted that he is not yet in tip-top condition.

Nevertheless, the Nigeria international was delighted that he has quickly settled into the team thanks to the warm reception he got from the coaching staff and his teammates.

''The way the team has received me earlier on made me feel very well and also being in Germany for a while now plays a role in it as I am used to the German culture already,'' said Anthony Ujah to news24.com.

The Werder Bremen number 21 continued: ''I am not fully fit yet because we are yet to play a full 90 minutes in a friendly game.

''But I feel good and believe I and the team are on a good way so far. My fitness level is 65 percent.''

The ex-Lillestrom and -Cologne star could make his official debut on August 8 in the DFB Pokal clash against Würzburger Kickers.

Ujah has netted 34 goals in the league since he arrived in Germany during the 2011 - 2012 season.
