Dessers: ‘I Must Start Scoring Goals For Cremonese In Serie A’

The Super Eagles of Nigeria forward, Cyriel Dessers, has tasked himself to start scoring goals for his new club, Cremonese after bagging one assist in six Serie A games so far this season.

Dessers joined Cremonese from Genk in this summer’s transfer window after a loan spell at Feyenoord last season. He scored an impressive 20 goals, plus four assists for the Dutch side in 41 games across all competitions.

In an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 27-year-old said he is an expert in the box.

“Now I must start scoring in Serie A,” Dessers told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I am an expert when it comes to playing in the opponent’s penalty box. I showed this in the match with Roma where I put pressure on their centre-backs and fought hard to win aerial duels.”

He has scored one goal in three appearances for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Cremonese are currently 18th in the Serie A with two points from six games.

Up next for Dessers and his Cremonese teammates is a Serie A home match against Lazio on Sunday September 18, 2022.
