ECSTATIC MURRAY SCOOPS AN OSCAR
MANSFIELD Town manager Adam Murray believes new signing Oscar Gobern will shine in League Two – because the midfielder is a Championship-quality player.
The 25-year-old was a free agent after leaving QPR and has previously played for Southampton and Huddersfield Town.
It means he is used to playing at a higher level than the EFL basement and Murray is confident he will be a big hit with the Stags.
“He has an excellent pedigree, mainly at Championship level. His ability is Championship-standard and he has a hunger to return to playing at the highest level – obviously we want that to be with us.
“Oscar is a very technical player, but also has the ability to get box-to-box and make things happen.
“Oscar was waiting for an opportunity for a club which matches his ambition and after speaking to a few clubs in League One, he felt that we were the right fit.”
