Emmanuel Emenike has described himself as “a warrior” who has conquered many battles, as he looks set to return to action after six months away.
Emenike has dared those who doubt he could make a successful comeback after six months out of action and an acrimonious split with Greek champions Olympiacos.
“I have been fighting since I was a child, and my family gave me that courage every time,” stated the 2013 AFCON Goal King in an interview.
“Playing football has not been easy for me, but I always fight hard in training and prove myself at any given chance to prove I am ready to deliver, and that’s why people see that aggression in me.
“I don’t give up, I love challenging myself and to respect others.”
“I play football with passion, I don’t see it as a means of surviving at any point, and it has really helped me in many ways in my career.
“Only those who know me will understand why I am aggressive on the pitch, I always want the best for my teams and ensure everybody is happy in the dressing room.
“As a matter of fact, to be heroic is to be courageous enough to die for something.
“I have seen, witnessed and battled many challenges in this game, but God has been faithful, he always justifies my name Emmanuel.”
