Ex-Nigeria U23 star Yusuf Olaitan Otubanjo would be handed jersey Number 34 at his new Slovak Superliga side Mestsky Sportovy Klub Zilina, otherwise known as MŠK Zilina.
Otubanjo, who penned a three-year deal with the club on Thursday said he has fond admiration for figure as well as drawing inspiration from legendary Arsenal and French striker, Thierry Henry.
"I found any number with 4 as my lucky number and I love the number 14 worn by Thierry Henry in his playing days," noted the striker who scored 28 goals in the just concluded Austrian Regionalliga Mitte season.
The 23-year-old said he was optimistic that the jersey Number 34 which he incidentally wore at FC Red Bull Salzburg, would fetch him goals at his new club.
"I decide to use any number any time I'm given a chance to choose," he stated." I used 34 at FC Red Bull and I have also told them I want jersey Number 34 here at MSK.
"I'm really happy seeing this happening; I got married just about a week ago and joined a new club few days later.
"What more can one ask God than to always thank God," he concluded.
