Nigerian international striker Emmanuel Emenike has pleaded for more time following his slow start at Upton Park and promised to score goals for West Ham.
The 28-year-old who has made two substitute appearances for the Hammers since joining on loan from Fenerbache stated that he has been impressed with the atmosphere at Upton Park but asked the fans for time to allow him to settle well into the team.
The burly forward came close and had the chance to score the winning goal in the 2-2 draw against Norwich but missed.
“I will get well and better in the team, the atmosphere is great, and I am hoping to start on a high note. I am hoping my teammates and the coach will help me to fit in perfectly because I am ready to adapt quickly and keep the confidence alive,” Emenike eas quoted in Turkish Soccer.
“My transfer to West Ham came at the right time. It is like a blessing. I did not want to leave Al Ain but I think God ordained the move, it happened so fast and coming to the English Premier League is something I have always wanted.”
Emenike also revealed that he did not join the Hammers for the money as he was earning more at Al Ain but wanted to prove himself in the Premier League.
“This move is not about money but it is difficult to explain to people who think every move is down to money. I have learned
from my past, I am a striker and I want to prove that I can still score goals,” he added.
