Emmanuel Emenike has told only AfricanFootball.com he hopes to do something “spectacular” with Turkish giants Fenerbache after his brace sunk Monaco in a Champions League qualifier in midweek.

The Nigeria striker has returned to Fenerbache after a season away on loan, first to Al Ain of Dubai and then West Ham in the Premier League.

He was forced out of the Istanbul outfit after a big fall out with the fans, but all that has now been forgiven and forgotten thanks to goals in pre-season and now against Monaco.

“I know the expectations of the fans and the club, so I am working hard to do something spectacular this new season,” Emenike told AfricanFootball.com

“My biggest priority is to keep scoring goals for Fenerbahce. I also want to win trophies with the club again.

“This is not my best; I am just ready to give all again. I am only paying for the lost time. I am not as bad as the way I was criticised in the past, but I am ready to prove a lot again.

“I hope to entertain the fans with top form throughout the season. I am still a top striker, and I wish to forget the past and look for the future.”

Emenike has certainly been boosted by his double in a 2-1 home win over Monaco in the Champions League on Wednesday and he said he hopes to recover from a calf injury ahead of next week’s second leg in France.

“I’m excited with the two goals and the victory over Monaco, but I think I have to do more and looking forward to be part of the return leg," Emenike further told AfricanFootball.com

“We are aware of their threat and that’s why I must be ready to do more. Scoring two goals against Monaco has reduced the pressure on me, but I believe I still have more work to do.

“Just like every other players in the team, I am very optimistic that we will qualify ahead of Monaco. I am very positive and I won’t allow the two goals to go to waste at this crucial stage.

“Fenerbahce are a Champions League club and we must be there with our fans, who have been very supportive.”
