ESPERANCE de Tunis have registered newly signed Nigerian forward, Anayo Iwuala, in their 34-man roster for the 2021/22 CAF Champions League.
Iwuala joined the Tunisian giants from Enyimba early this month on a three-year contract worth $500,000 and will be a key member of the team in the coming season.
The club said in a statement, “Tunisia’s Esperance Sportive recently sent its list of 34 players, and we can therefore add six players during the next winter window.”
Iwuala will however be hoping to make his first start for the club when they face US Monastir in their opening 2021/21 season opener on Tuesday (today).
Esperance have drawn bye and will not be playing in the preliminary rounds of the money-spinning African inter-club championship.
Iwuala was one of the standout players for Enyimba in the 2020/21 league season, scoring four goals in 34 appearances across all competitions.
