At the unveiling of Imoh Ezekiel to Las Palmas fans on Saturday, the Nigerian striker promised he’s prepared for La Liga and will do everything within his possible physical and mental limit to help the Gran Canaria side battle relegation.

Ezekiel, a bronze medalist at Rio 2016 football event, was snapped up by Las Palmas on Friday after enduring nearly 2 months as a free agent.

“I am ready to play, but now it all depends on the coach. I am very happy to have signed at UD Las Palmas, it is a great opportunity for me to play in the best league in the world and against the best players,” Ezekiel told the Spanish media during his unveiling on Saturday.

“I will do everything possible to have a good season with UD Las Palmas.”

The 24 year old then went on to narrate his ordeal at his previous club, Konyaspor where he left last December.

“It was difficult for me to adapt to Turkish football, my family was not happy and that is why we decided to look for another club. Also I was owed for several months there which made it more difficult.” Ezekiel explained.

The Nigerian will most likely make his debut next Saturday when Las Palmas welcome Sevilla at the Gran Canaria.
