Handling Director Thomas Tebbich mentioned an financial investment for the future, a gamer with substantial possible as well as one more exciting stock for the coming years.

Emegha only switched over from Sparta Rotterdam to Royal Antwerp in the winter season of this year for 1.5 million euros. In Belgium, Emegha, whose twin brother Joshua plays at HV & Curriculum Vitae Quick the Haag, might not prevail. A reality that opened the door for the SK Sturm.

_ The commitment of Emanuel Embha came as a surprise to storm fans. Exactly how was your response to the adjustment? _

Bert countererman: The transfer likewise shocked me. I had Emanuel in the Dutch U19 team last year as well as he wished for a transfer to a huge league at the time, he assumed concerning Germany and also England.

In an interview with Royal Antwerp , Dutch U19 team employer Bert Konterman, under which EMEGHA was able to score five objectives in 7 objectives, shares his evaluation of the gamer. And also why didn’t it work in Antwerp?

_ Can you enter into a bit a lot more detailed why it really did not benefit him at Royal Antwerp? _

_ I spoke with 2 scouts from the Netherlands and Germany. Both find EMEGHA fascinating, large, fast, literally strong, yet with potential for improvement in the technical area. Do you see it? _

counterman : He actually has skill. His technology has to obtain far better. I typically had discussions with Emanuel and was extremely persuaded of his viewpoint.

counterman : He already arrived with a knee injury, a band was insulted. When he got fit, competitor Michael Frey was in leading form (22 objectives in 33 league video games, note). It was certainly hard for Emanuel as an 18-year-old to obtain opportunities-Royal has truly excellent aspirations. So he never truly got the possibility to show himself. As well as when Emanuel obtains the sensation that he does not see the light at the end of the passage, in my viewpoint he becomes persistent as well as obtains included in discussions.


_ Do you have a widely known gamer as a reference to illustrate his design of play? _

counterman : I’m interested myself. If he obtains the opportunity, Emanuel can show something similar. I think Sturm paid a lot of money for him, I wish that he can hold up against pressure.

_ Was do you expect from his time in Graz? He was already substituted versus SV Ried on Saturday. _.

counterman : Viewed soberly we have a rather average generation below.
If you strive, you can bring solid solutions on the lawn.
I no more have the group around Emanuel, and even the repeating generation does not be composed of top leading abilities like Robin van Persie or Arjen Robben, but as a team we can reveal great football.
We have to wait a little bit longer for the brand-new van Persies and Robbens, perhaps that will certainly take 2 or three years.
