Nigerian striker welcomed by Dundee United boss

11 February 2016, 13:21Israel Ojoko

Edinburgh - Dundee United manager Mixu Paatelainen is delighted to snap up Nigerian striker Edward Ofere to the Scottish Premiership club as they struggle to beat relegation.

The former Inverness forward now joine Dundee United till the end of the current season.

Ofere is in line to make his debut against Hamilton on Saturday and Paatelainen insisted the big Nigerian is the target man United need.

“Edward will add another dimension to our game. We have been looking for a big striker for a while now. Until now I have felt we’ve been a bit small up front and the crosses into the box have had to be kept low. But now we can hang crosses up and make runs off that, so it gives us another option,” he said on Daily Record.

“He is desperate to do well here and help the team. He scored goals in the Premiership last season for Inverness and knows the league, so that is a positive.

“Because sometimes when players come to Scotland they can be shocked by the pace of the game. But he knows what it’s all about and will link up well with our other strikers.

“We have quite a few options up front now, which is good to have as a manager.

“His match fitness could be better, he’s not played since December, but has been training.”

The Tangerines are 11 points adrift but have two games in hand and face Hamilton on Saturday and then Motherwell on Tuesday.
