It’s also a way to introduce someone: just before kick-off against Charleroi, KV Oostende suddenly announced the arrival of striker Thierry Ambrose (24), who suddenly walked onto the field. He will sign the former young Manchester City player until 2024. “Terry was definitely number one to become our new striker,” said sporting director Gauthier Jani. “We wanted him from last summer.”
Ambrose comes from Metz, where he ended up last summer after the French side paid Manchester City €2m, where he trained. However, making it to the first team was unsuccessful, as he managed to score 14 goals in the Premier League 2. Ambrose, who is 1.78 meters tall and has his right foot, was also loaned to NAC Breda for a year in 2017/2018, and the striker showed Himself productive with ten goals in 33 matches in the Eredivisie. He also played a season on loan at Lens. KV Oostende has been on the hunt for an extra striker for a while: with Gueye and Kvasina, the coastal boys only have two strikers. So far I have found reinforcements in France.
The newcomer signs a contract until 2024 and immediately came to introduce himself to the masses at the Diaz Arena. “I hope we can achieve great things here together,” the Frenchman shouted over the microphone. He picked a great number: 68. “Because I played with that at Manchester City,” he said.
