“Izunna has for many years in Denmark proved that he is a
top player,” Nielsen disclosed. “He is fast and he is very skillful and
balanced, which makes him really good in high pressure games.
“He is skillful on the ball in the central part of the
field, and we know he can play at a very high level. Overall, he is the kind of
player we are looking forward to having in the squad, he has been in Denmark,
understands the Danish league and has won the title with Midjiytland before
going to Russia.”
Odense are currently seventh on the Danish Super Liga table.

games for Amkar in all competitions before the winter break.For
