Zayed signs for Sligo Rovers
New signing Eamon Zayed said "every game will mean a lot to me" after joining the Bit o' Red on loan from Shamrock Rovers on Thursday.
The Libyan international makes the switch to The Showgrounds for the rest of the season and said he is raring to go in the remainder of the campaign.
He said: "It feels great. I'm absolutely delighted that the move went through. I'm really just looking forward to really taking this opportunity. That's what it is. It's a fantastic opportunity between now and the end of the season to play games and score goals on a regular basis. It is something that hasn't happened recently for a number of reasons.
"Hopefully I will be able to be involved on Friday. We have to go on a winning streak to get into the top four but that's the goal. I'm hopeful I can help them and as I said, just get cracking. Every game I'll be excited for and really looking forward to them. Every game we have left will mean a lot to me."
Zayed, who finished as the league’s top scorer in 2011 and was also named the PFAI Player of the Year previously, said he could not be more motivated in joining Sligo Rovers as he aims to make a big impression at the club.
He said playing matches and scoring goals is his desire over the coming months.
"It hasn't happened recently. The only focus I have right now is to get playing and scoring goals and enjoying my football again. That is something that I haven't done in a while. I'm hoping I can do that in Sligo.
"I can safely say right now I have all the motivation in the world to go out and score goals. Although I have played for many years in the league, I still feel I have a lot to prove. There is a lot of people I do want to prove wrong. I can't be more motivated to get the head down, work hard, enjoy it and score goals on a regular basis. That's all I want to do.
"From speaking to Dermot (Kelly), speaking to John (Coleman), speaking to Gavin Dykes as well, they have exciting plans for the future in Sligo. I'd like to be a part of it. I'm here on loan at the moment and for me to have any future at Sligo I need get the head down and do well between now and the end of the season.
"There is not too many games left but there is enough, enough to make an impression."
