It is barely a month ago since Ugandan youngster Sadat Anaku joined Dundee United from KCCA FC but he is already stabilizing to life in Scotland.
Anaku was handed his first start for the club when they lost 2-1 to St Johnstone at home on Saturday and he’s looking forward to many more starts against any opposition.
“Making my first start as a Dundee player was special, especially in front of our fans who have given me so much support,” Anaku was quoted saying by Courier Sport.
“I am not afraid of big matches nor playing against big teams.”
“All that matters to me is how can I help the team and how Dundee United gets back to winning ways?”
He was signed by Jack Ross who was later sacked and there was a scare, especially from Uganda on how he would cope with it.
However, the 20-year-old is comfortable with the new boss Liam Fox and the latter has been supportive so far.
“The manager (Liam Fox) has always been there for me. He is a nice guy and has been a very positive influence on me, helping me catch up with the situation at the club.”
“On my first start, he told me to go and play my game and show what I am capable of,” Anaku remembered.
The former KCCA striker will be hoping to start again on Saturday when his side hosts Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership.
Dundee continues to search for its first win of the season having played eight, lost six, and drawn two.
The Terrors are placed bottom of the 12-team log with only two points.
