The Mohammed and Umar joined the former Africa champions as free agents following their expiration of their contracts with Ghana Premier League sides Elmina Sharks and Aduana Stars respectively.
During an interview with the duo, they were asked the reasons for choosing the Peoples Elephant ahead of other interesting offers they received, Mohammed answered,”I had been hearing about the name of the club (Enyimba) right from when I was young and I feel great to be part of the team now,’ he told Completesportsnigeria.com
‘I had offers from clubs in Ghana and other African countries too, but I decided to join Enyimba because of their pedigree in Nigeria and Africa.”
‘Having Fatau Dauda here too has helped me settle down and our new teammates have received me well and made me feel at home too.
‘My main target is to help the club win the league title next season and the CAF Confederation Cup.’
And also, Umar, who did not hide his joy about completing the deal, stated, ‘To have the chance to play Enyimba I must say it’s a great privilege for me.”
