OJO’S BIG CHAL­LENGE

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

NEW Scun­thorpe sign­ing Funso Ojo is vow­ing to im­prove his strength and fit­ness to adapt to the phys­i­cal na­ture of the English style of play.

The Bel­gian mid­fielder joined the side on a free trans­fer from Dutch club Willem II in July.

“I’m still ad­just­ing,” the 25-year-old said. “There are some teams that can’t match up our tech­ni­cal play, so they give us a phys­i­cal test.

“I still have to get stronger and maybe in two or three games I will be up to the league level and the pace.”
