Nigerian striker Terem Moffi has been praised for his character by his new teammate at OGC Nice

Barely two weeks into his OGC Nice career, Nigerian striker Terem Moffi is already making a good impression on his new teammates.

Moffi joined the club in a deadline day transfer from fellow French club Lorient after a month-long transfer saga involving other clubs.

OGC Nice striker Gaetan Laborde has been speaking positively about his new strike partner Moffi since arriving at the Allianz Riviera.

In an interview with L’Equipe, Laborde spoke about life at OGC Nice including his new strike partner Moffi who just joined the club.

“He is a very cheerful person, who seems very happy," Laborde began in response to a question about Moffi and how he fits into the team.

"I don’t see it as individualistic. I feel that we are somewhat in the same state of mind, that we will try to work for each other," the 28-year-old continued.

Laborde continued, "He is a different profile. He is very strong, able to hold the ball with his back to the goal and go deep. As smart players, I feel that we can do something great together.”

On the possibility of moving wider in the attack to accommodate Moffi, Larbode was very welcoming and reiterated his willingness to do whatever it takes to help the team.

“Why not? I am fortunate to be able to play across the entire front line. On the side, on the right, on the left, as a striker, or as a second striker. It’s important for the team to have two players who can play together and score.”

Moffi scored 12 goals in 18 games for Lorient in the first half of the season which led to a move to OGC Nice but he failed to score on his debut in a 3-1 win away at Marseille last weekend.
