Enoh hopeful of Maccabi move

Posted: 22 July 2008 Time: 09:40

Ajax Cape Town’s Cameroonian midfielder Eyong Enoh says he is giving a good account of himself on trial at Israeli club Maccabi Haifa and is hopeful that he will secure an overseas move.

The 22-year-old player says he has adapted well to his surrounding and is impressed with his input at training and in some friendly matches that he has participated in.

“I have settled in quite well at the team. The training and friendly games I have played make me very positive,” he tells KickOff.com from Israel.

Enoh says having given it his best shot during the trial, the ball is now in the courts of the two clubs to conclude if a move is possible.

If a transfer comes through, the highly-rated player, who played in Cyprus before coming to South Africa, will join former Urban Warriors teammate Thembinkosi Terror Fanteni and Bafana defender Tsepo Masilela at the “Israeli Manchester United”.

“It is left for the club and Ajax to finalise terms. I will be back in Cape Town by midweek and remain there until all is finalised,” says Enoh.

The Kumba-born player played a significant part in Ajax’s impressive run that culminated in the young team challenge strongly for a maiden league triumph only to be denied by champions SuperSport United in the last game of the season.

Enoh won over the Urban Warriors fans and other neutrals with his commanding displays in the middle of the park and was a strong contender for individual Absa Premiership accolades.

I think that it will be a good move for Eyong to further his carreer abroad. He is a very good player and hopefully scouts from other european federations will take note of him. All of us first crawl before we walk, so yes it is a step in the right direction for him to first establish himself in the so called smaller teams

There is little Africa in Israel now I guess. And it seems as if they have just started recruiting any african who claims to be a soccer player! I am pleading with our S.A stars not to go for trials there anymore. This has just become boring. What do you think Tshepo and Terror can with that Enoh amateur?

Mini are you awaking from slumber land by calling Enoh amateur ? You are probably a Bucs supporter whose so called star player modise was everytime overshadowed by Enoh or a sundowns supporter whose star player(s) Esrom & Godfrey was also overshadowed by Enoh or a chief supporter whose star player(s) Tinashe & Sibeko was also OUTPLAYED by the GENERAL OF MIDFIELDERS, ENOH EYONG. Please go watch any matches he played in for the 2007/8 season and tell me who outplayed this midfield maestro.
I rest my case

If south african based are serious about improving their standard of soccer then its better for them to join competitive sides like Al-Ahly and Esperance than join mediocre in third rate leagues like Israel in the name of pursuing their careers in Europe.

Those proffessors amongst us that claim the Israeli league is sub standard and third tier are so far off the mark that they are best educating them selves about the league there. Not only do Israeli teams have a fairly competitive record in european cups, but they also have a terrific fan base, games have atmosphere, and the football is of a high quality. To compare it to cyprus is off the mark. Its probably equal to turkey, romania, russia, Denmark, Greece. these are not 3rd tier leagues. Id call them 2nd tier if anything. Not everyone will get a break in the english, spanish, italian or german leagues. So stop kakaing every move that a player makes to israel. Israeli sides offer a lot more opportunity than the north african clubs one of u mentioned. Just because u profs havent got any knowledge of israels football it doesnt mean its a weak league, but rather that your knowledge of israeli football is weak.
