New signing at HJK Helsinki of Finland, Macauley Chrisantus has promised to do his very best in order to rain goals with the club, as he says scoring lots of them is what he is paid to do.
The Korea 2007 FFIA U-17 World Cup gold medallist and top scorer sealed a deal with HJK late Monday, thereby making him the next Nigerian after Taye Ismaila Taiwo and Nnamdi Oduamadi to star for the club, but he says his mission to do even better this new season.
This is the latest stop for the once promising product of FC Abuja, whose last deal was at Spanish third division side, Real Murcia and, though he arrives in Helsinki as a free agent, Chrisantus says he is determined to prove his mettle once again.
Chrisantus was officially unveiled by the club after passing a routine medical, and signed a four month deal with the option of a year extension, based on his performance.
Though the terms appear steep, the 27-year-old striker, who has also previously played in Germany, Turkey and Greece, said he is confident that he will score goals for the team.
Chrisantus stressed: “HJK is not a small club. So I’m very happy to be joining them at this crucial point of my career.
“I believe it will be the turning point in my career after so many ups and downs. The club signed me to score goals and that is what I intend to do by the grace of God.
“My record is there for everybody to see. Once I play, I score and I’m in my best shape ever. So expect plenty goals from me.”
