EC­STATIC MUR­RAY SCOOPS AN OS­CAR

The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Tom Black­ett

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.”

PEDI­GREE: Os­car Gobern
