Super Falcons defender, Ebere Orji says it was a dream come true to have joined Paris Saint Germain female club.

Ebere was an integral part of the Falcons squad that clinched the 2014 Africa Women’s Championships in Namibia and also featured at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada, where the team crashed out in the group stage.

She revealed that joining the Parian club would motivate and develop her football career.

“I am very motivated by this new challenge that awaits me here in Paris. It’s a dream come true,” said Ebere after completing her move to the Paris side.

“I’m here to give my very best and win trophies.”

Meanwhile, manager of the Paris St Germain Feminines, Farid Benstiti, views Ebere as the perfect partner for highly-rated French defender, Laure Boulleau.

But Benstiti, despite being optimistic of the quality that Ebere will add to their defence, pleaded for time for the Nigerian to adapt.

“She will be the complement of Laure Boulleau, who was in demand during recent seasons. She has great potential and qualities that were shown in the last World Cup. She will need time to adapt, but her qualities will enable her to be ready soon enough,” the PSG manager said of his new Nigerian acquisition.
