After officially joining the Italian Serie A club U.S. Salernitana on Tuesday,
Super Eagles vice-captain William Troost-Ekong says his age and experience will come in handy, as his target is to help the club survive relegation, BSNSports.com.ng has gathered.
Shortly after arriving from his English Championship club Watford, Troost-Ekong passed his medical check, signed his contract, handed the number 15 jersey and was later drilled by the coaching staff of the club as they prepare for the away game against Lecce on Friday at the Stadio Comunale Via Del Mare.
"It's a difficult period for the club and it can happen to anyone, as they have young but strong players," the Nigerian said in his first media chat.
"I know the Italian league, and I'm ready to do my best for the club as we seek to finish in a better position on the table at the end of the season.
"Both the English and Italian leagues are difficult, the Premier League is perhaps faster, with no breathing space.
"It was a good experience for me, I'm coming back to Italy to improve even though I'm 29, I already have the experience.
"My goal is the same as the team's, staying in Serie A."
