Cyriel Dessers new jersey number revealed after switch to US Cremonese

by: Evolve


Following his transfer from KRC Genk to Italian Serie A team, US Cremonese, Super Eagles attacker Cyriel Dessers has officially unveiled his new jersey number.

Recall that the attacker joined David Okereke, who had already departed Club Brugge, in completing a deal to the newly promoted team on Wednesday.

The forward, who recently joined the Cremonese of Serie A, is ready to face the task ahead of him and will now officially wear jersey number 90.

After a productive loan season with Feyenoord last year, where he scored 10 goals in the Europa Conference League to help them advance to the competition’s final, the Nigerian international will now dump the number 33 jersey he wore at Eredivisie giants.

The 27-year-old added nine more goals to his tally in the Eredivisie before returning to his parent club in June after Rotterdam dismissed the idea of making his loan deal permanent.

There were many admirers for the Belgian-born star, whose popularity grew as a result of his successes on the European stage, but the Grigiorossi succeeded to get his services.

Dessers is thrilled to compete with some of the top players in the world, but he is also fully aware of the challenges that lie ahead.

Cyriel Dessers stated it was a dream come true for him to play in the Italian league and compared his transfer to the Serie A to a young child opening a Christmas present.
