On the club’s official website, Ujah stated: “I am delighted to join Eintracht in the future. I am familiar with the 2nd Bundesliga and will try to use my knowledge to benefit the team. On Sunday, I was cheering for the team and watching the cup game at the Nigerian airport.

At the end of the day, we want to rejoice in our relegation together, and I will give it my all, the newcomer continues.

Anthony Ujah an asset 

“With Anthony Ujah, we have a seasoned striker who, when fully fit, will improve our team’s offensive capabilities, especially in terms of scoring goals. At the same time, his expertise will help our young attackers. Tony is a true team player, according to Peter Vollmann, the sporting director at Eintracht.

Meanwhile, former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has insisted that if manager Erik ten Hag is confident that players like Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, and Jadon Sancho can step into Cristiano Ronaldo’s shoes at Old Trafford, then Ronaldo will likely leave for another club.


Ronald is in the final year of his deal at Old Trafford after returning to Man United from Juventus last summer.


After the team missed out on qualifying for the UEFA Champions League the previous season, the former Real Madrid star is desperate to leave Man United.


The five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or also skipped Man United’s preseason trip to Australia and Thailand last month.


Ferdinand gave his opinion on Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United in an interview with FootballJOE.


“If you’re Manchester United, where are you going to find 20 goals? That’s the biggest question in my mind. Where are the 20 goals going to come from if you let Cristiano go now? Unless you think [Jadon] Sancho, [Marcus] Rashford, and Anthony] Martial can fill that void.”


Cristiano will likely join another team if Erik ten Hag believes that and feels comfortable doing it, the speaker continued. The fact that Cristiano hasn’t been permitted to leave the building suggests to me that they want him back because they are confident he will score 20 goals for them this year.



“I think your body and age will tell you that, but Cristiano is a very, very special case, in my opinion. We have never seen anyone physically like him, so I believe you need to consider that when evaluating his profile and ask yourself, “Can he play a lot of games?
