Easy Decision for me - DN'G

31 July 2015

New signing says he should have no problem fitting in.

New signing Dany N’Guessan says he can’t wait to get stuck in to life at Doncaster Rovers, following his arrival on a two-year contract.


The former Leicester City man said it wasn’t a difficult decision for him to make and integrating won’t be a problem as he knows most of the first team squad!


“I know quite a few of the lads, Richie Wellens (Leicester), Gary MacKenzie (Glasgow Rangers), Richard Chaplow and Nathan Tyson (Millwall), Cedric Evina (Charlton), Andy Williams (Swindon) and that’s about it!” N’Guessan enthused.


“Its always good when you know people. Its hard if you’re a new player and don’t know anybody.


“(The decision) very hard for me to be honest. I spoke to Paul (Dickov) last year and unfortunately it didn’t go the way we wanted but we spoke again and it’s happened. 


“I know Paul as a person as well and I wanted to make a good choice for my career and get back on track and I think I’ll do that. As a player you want to go somewhere where the manager knows you and what you can do.”


N’Guessan broke free from his contract with Greek side AE Larissa to get his career “back on track” at the age of 27 and add a different dimension to the Rovers front line.


“I decided to come back because everyone knows what is going on over there with the economy crisis it’s not a great place to be,” he admitted.


“I know what I wanted, I wanted to break my contract – which was good – but im a family man and want to do the best for them so wanted to come back to England and get back on track.


“Some people will say my pace and my ability with my two feet (is my strongest attribute), some people like me as a striker and some as a winger. I have more experience on the wing but have played more upfront lately and just want to enjoy my football.


“Wherever I’m played, I’ll try to do my best – apart from goalkeeper!”
