New Ufa signing Sylvester Igboun admits he'll miss FC Midtjylland

15 July 2015, 07:50

Abuja - Russian Premier League side FC Ufa have announced the signing of Sylvester Igboun from Danish champions FC Midtjylland on a four-year deal.

Prior to completing his move to Ufa, the 24-year-old Igboun had spent the whole of his professional career with FCM after joining them as a teenager from collaborative team FC Ebedei.

The attacker has pleaded with the fans to show understanding over his decision to cut ties with The Wolves after a proposed move to China fell through in the winter transfer market.

''I had come to a point where I was going on, and I hope everyone understands my decision,'' said Sylvester Igboun.

''But I will miss FCM, the supporters and the city, and I will never forget those who have helped me to where I am today.''

On the prospect of meeting Izunna Uzochukwu in Russia, he said: ''It will be fun to meet him. We were like brothers from the first day at FCM. Then he disappeared, but now we are all closer to each other again.''

In 164 outings for FC Midtjylland, Sylvester Igboun found the back of the net 47 times.
