Paul Mukairu also said: “This is a big club with big ambitions that I want to work hard to fulfil with the team. I’ve seen a lot of videos from recent matches, and I’m especially looking forward to experiencing Parken and the atmosphere there.” “At first, a lot of hard work awaits me to integrate into the team and get to know a new style and my teammates, but I’m excited and can’t wait to get out and start training.”
The sporting director of Copenhagen Peter Christiansen said: ”Paul fulfils the need we have had for a winger because his speed and one-on-one abilities give us more options and new opportunities in attack.” “Paul has already spent part of his career in Turkey, while his stint at Anderlecht was in a league that can be compared to some extent to ours.”
Mukairu played 53 games for Antalyaspor, and he scored a total of eight goals. He was selected for 29 matches during his time at Anderlecht, where he scored four goals and provided four assists.
