Ebere Orji Sends ‘Thank You’ Message To Former Club

Nigeria international, Ebere Orji has expressed gratitude to her friends and fans who made her time in Hungary worth the while.

Last month, Orji completed a move from Hungarian women champions, Ferencváros to Umeå IK, a second division side in Sweden, and has scored three goals in two matches already – the latest being a brace in a 3-1 win over Ostersund at the Umea Energi Arena on the 2nd of September.

The striker’s first goal came on her debut in a 3-1 defeat at Boljan – just 24 hours after completing her move to the Elitettan on August 24.

“It has not been easy to move from one team to another. I really appreciate all my friends and fans at Ferencváros, ‘you guys are great and I am so proud to be a part of your history’,” Orji posted on her Facebook page.

“But I have to move on. Looking for new challenges. [I] have won everything with you guys, which I am so happy and proud of. I will always be your fan.

“Now ready to commit everything to Umeå IK of Sweden. Already three goals in two matches. It’s all about new challenges,” she concluded.

Before seeking a new challenge in Sweden, Orji claimed a league and cup double with Ferencváros in Hungary.

Her new club, Umeå IK got relegated from the Damallsvenskan last season and are hoping to make a quick return to the Swedish women top-flight.

They are currently in the seventh position on the Elitettan table with 27 points from 18 games and they will travel to face Uppsala at the Studenternas stadium on Sunday.
