Málaga sports director, Francesc Arnau, has described Ikechukwu Uche as a quality addition to the La Liga side.
Uche joined Malaga from Mexican side Tigres on loan on transfer deadline day on Monday.
He is expected to be with the team till the end of the season.
Speaking at his press conference on Tuesday, Arnau said Uche together with Uruguayan Federico Ricco, who also joined on the last day of the transfer, are good signings for Malaga.
“Nobody could argue the quality of Uche, we’ll give him time and enjoy what he does,” Arnau said. “He passed his medical perfectly and is ready to play. (Federico) Ricca is a valued player from Uruguay, and we believe he could be a major asset in the future for our club, both short and long term.
“He’s a left-back, aggressive, kicks the ball well and has the ambition to be a great footballer. He is growing and I hope we see him in action for a long time. “In this aspect we gain time by bringing forward his arrival. We thought about two or three more additions, plus the two surprises we had.”
Malaga are currently 10th in the La Liga table, and will host Getafe in their next league game.
