Samuel keen to Revive His Career in Israel


Struggling Israeli Premier League club Beitar Jerusalem have signed Nigeria international striker Aaron Samuel on a one-year deal.

Samuel, who joins with the option for an additional year, left Russian side CSKA Moscow at the end of last season.


“I have come to a family team and one of the biggest clubs in Israel, and I hope to make a great contribution,” the forward said.


Beitar Jerusalem are bottom of the table in the 14-team Ligat ha’Al with four points from six matches this season and will be looking to Samuel to help them address their goal-scoring problems.


A former youth international for Nigeria, he made his senior debut for the Super Eagles against Sudan in October 2014.


He has endured an injury-plagued international career scoring twice in seven games for the three-time African champions.
