THE YAK IS BACK – TO BAG GOALS
NEW Reading striker Yakubu has promised to live up to his goalscoring reputation following his surprise arrival at the Madejski Stadium.
‘The Yak’s’ return to these shores after three years was confirmed when he signed for the Royals on transfer deadline day.
And the former Portsmouth and Middlesbrough man is convinced he can pick up where he left off in front of goal.
“When I get the ball, for sure I am going to score,” said the 32-year-old.“I have confidence.
“As a striker, if you don’t score goals, it’s like you’re not doing your job. So I always believe I can score, whatever league I play in.
“I hope my team-mates feed me, then I can score. I never set myself a target. I just want to score goals.This is the place to be.”
The striker’s return to England follows spells with Chinese Super League club Guangzhou R&F and Al Rayyan of Qatar.
