Troost Ekong ready for Salernitana challenge

Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong is committed to help Salernitana escape relegation to the Serie B.

The 29-year-old joined the Serie A strugglers on loan until the end of the season with option to buy from Watford.

“It’s a difficult period for the club and it can happen to anyone, as they have young but strong players,” the Super Eagles vice-captain told the club’s official website.

Ekong played for Udinese for two seasons after joining from Turkish side Bursaspor, before moving to Watford in 2020, where he then spent three solid seasons.

“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.”

Troost-Ekong trained with his new teammates for the first time on Tuesday and could make his debut for the club against Lecce this weekend.
