Deal with Chinese club Henan Huishang best I ever signed, Ebi says

 Super Falcons defender Onome Ebi said her new deal with Chinese outfit  Henan Huishang FC was the best she has ever signed.

Ebi said she had for long eyed playing in the Chinese football league and was glad to have now exploited the opportunity.

“In spite of my interest, I still doubted the quality of football being played in the Asian league until an intervention came,’’ the defender said.

Ebi who had earlier played for clubs in Turkey, Sweden and Belarus said Falcons’ teammate Asisat Oshoala eventually convinced her of the league’s standard.

“It is a dream come true for me, because I have always eyed the Chinese league.

“This is also the best deal for me, so far in my career, which includes the training, money, comfort and more.

“The league is now very competitive unlike what I had thought and it will pave way for more Nigerians to move there,’’ she said.

Ebi who was unveiled on Thursday said the distance from Nigeria would not deter her from doing her best for her club in China.

“I am a professional and used to such situations,’’ she said.
