Eduok, who netted 25 goals for club side and country in the previous year, was presented to the media alongside other new signings midfielder Magno Da Cruz and defender Hatem Bejooui at a press conference held at the El-Menzah Olympic Stadium.

The former Dolphins hitman was handed a jersey number 21 after he finally brought to an end his three seasons stay at the Pride of Rivers.

The former Flying Eagles star said he was delighted joining the 2011 Caf Champions League winners and set to hit the ground running in Tunisia.

The former Akwa United forward, who was recently embroiled in some transfer mess which had earlier him decamped from the national team, said he has put the incident behind him and focused on succeeding with Esperance.

“I don’t think it’s a bad move for me. I believe I can always do my best, no matter where I am. I think it’s good for me. The weather in Tunisia is cool, but I think I will get use to it with time,” Eduok told Goal.

“I will not be distracted, but just want to keep doing my best and keep on scoring goals in the Champions League, league and FA Cup. I just want to be myself, do my best and help the team to achieve their goals as the new season is about to start,” he concluded.

No doubt, his departure will clearly take a bit of shine off the NPFL when the new season reopens as well as his presence will be hugely missed at Dolphins.

However, Esperance new recruit Edouk may make his debut when the “Blood and Gold” play an international club friendly match against Ittihad of Libya on Saturday, January 24 at Zouiten Stadium.

The Nigerian star has been included in the list of 26 registered players by the technical and administrative staff for the preparation and return phase of the competition.
