“We are focused on the new season and the biggest target is for us to retain the Turkish league and get back to Champions League football,” Emenike told AfricanFootball.com

“I am not happy to be missing in action at that level but I believe we will be back there.”
Fenerbache have already shown they mean business by clinching the Turkish Super Cup on Monday at the expense of fierce local rivals Galatasaray.
Emenike said the team’s fighting spirit won the prestige final for them.
“Fenerbahce is a team of fightersand we always triumph in games because of our determination. That was secret of our victory against Galatasaray,” he further told
“It was a tough game, a football war, but I am happy we came out victorious. I am so proud of this team and the fighting spirit.
“Winning the Super Cup fulfilled a dream for me and I believe it will go a long way for everybody who fought hard to defeat Galatasaray.”
Fenerbache will begin their title defence on Sunday at home against Emenike’s former club Karabukspor.
