Sharks snap up Abutu



Nigeria Premier League (NPL) club, Sharks have completed the signing of midfielder, Jonah Abutu.

The 23-year-old joins the Port Harcourt club from another NPL outfit, Lobi Stars for an undisclosed fee.

Abutu who is making a return to the club having dorned their colours between 2006 and 2008 said he was convinced to join Sharks by new coach, Augustine Eguavoen.

“I came (to Sharks) because coach Eguavoen told me he was coming to Sharks football club because the team has been looking for a major trophy in the local scene and he wants me to come contribute my own quota for sharks to get a trophy,”. Abutu told supersport.com.

The midfielder began his football education at lower league side, Bussdor said his previous stint at the club will put him in a strong position to help the club achieve set objectives.

“Don’t forget that I was once here and it will be a thing of joy to be part of history in Sharks,” he said.

Abutu also expressed confidence in the quality of players signed by the club ahead of the 2012/13 season.

“With the calibre of players on ground ,the old and new i believe we can make it with determination and hard work and with experience and blend of young talented players the sky will be the limit for sharks FC,” he stated.

Sharks finished the 2011/12 season in 7th place with 52 points from 36 matches.
