Dolphins have completed the registration of Senegalese central defender, Mendy Xavier and Cote d’Ivoire’s Alhassane Dosso ahead of their tough fixtures in the new season.
Xavier last played for ASFA Yennega of Burkina Faso and only recently crossed over to Dolphins in the off season.
“We cannot say we scouted him because an agent brought him to Port Harcourt and after the coaches tried him out they saw the potential and began to work on his papers,” Dolphins media officer, China Acheru, said.
Midfielder Dosso played for the club between 2005 and 2008 before joining Sharks and then moved to Norway.
Other players who have sealed deals with the club ahead of the game against Crown this weekend are Victor Alegbe, a midfielder from Wikki Tourists as well as Ayobanmi Asekunuwo, a central defender from Wikki Tourists.
“The idea is to get a big squad with a lot of quality backup. This is what the coaches have been trying to do and we believe we will continue to build our squad as the weeks go by.”
Dolphins started the season on a good note drawing 1-1 against Heartland in Owerri in Week One; their first ever point in Owerri.
Xavier and Dosso signed one year contracts with Dolphins, while Alegbe and Ayobanmi were taken on one-year loan deals from Wikki Tourists
