New Werder Bremen acquisition, Anthony Ujah, has spoken of his delight at scoring a hat – trick on his unofficial debut for the Bundesliga team in their 11 – 0 thrashing of Neuruppin. The Nigeria international chose to play down the large margin of victory, stating that the opponents were competitive even though defensive.
“It was a good test for us as the opponent played defensive all through the game and we kept trying to get to scoring chances,” Ujah said to allnigeriasoccer. com. “I am dedicating this hat – trick to Almighty God and by His grace I will have more to score in official games ahead.”
The former Cologne and Mainz 05 forward could make his official debut when Werder Bremen tackle Würzburger Kickers on July 6 in the DFB Pokal. And if that is the case, Anthony Ujah will step out onto the turf with the number 21 kit.
Explaining why he joined Bremen, Ujah said life at Cologne was becoming too routine and that contributed to his decision to severe ties with The Billy Goats. The 24 – year – old scored 34 goals in 94 league matches before ending his three – year association with the RheinEnergieStadion outfit in the summer transfer market.
