On loan Manchester City forward Thierry Ambrose has praised the presence of Nigerian forward Sadiq Umar as the reason why he is experiencing an upturn of form for Dutch side NAC Breda.
Sadiq joined the Dutch side on loan till the end of the season from Italian side Roma after terminating his loan deal with Torino, where he spent the first half of the season on loan but injuries and fitness issues reduced him to few games.
Ambrose who is on a season long loan deal from Man City joined Breda in the summer, but his form has improved tremendously following the signing of the Nigerian, who is now his strike partner at the modest Dutch side, and their partnership has helped the team picked up three straight wins in the league.
Jololo as the Nigerian is called by friends and teammates, has provided two assists to the Man City loanee, and he also won a penalty which the forward conceded in their last weekend 2-0 win over ADO Den Haag in the Eredivisie.
” The presence of Sadiq has helped me a lot. I feel good and have more confidence. He brings what I could not bring. He holds the ball and makes good running actions. With Sadiq I no longer feel alone in the attack, so I can focus on the second ball instead of standing and feeling alone in the box “, the soon to be 21 year old revealed in an interview published on Bndestem.nl.
” With Sadiq the pressure of scoring is shared between us and for me that’s better. Left, right or in the centre, that makes no difference to me”.
