Ojamaa: A Great Opportunity

4 September 2015

HENRIK Ojamaa believes that joining Swindon Town is a ‘great opportunity’ with Town’s style of play a contributing factor in his decision to move to Wiltshire.

Speaking to the official website shortly after putting pen to paper on a one-year deal with the option of a further year, the Estonian international says that it’s good to be back in the country where it all started for him.

“I thought it would be a great opportunity,” he said. “Obviously, the way Swindon play, they’re known for playing good football. They were one of the better teams in this league last year and were very close to going up so I’m excited to be here and can’t wait to get started.

“I started my pro career at Derby as a scholar and a young professional but it was really Motherwell where I made my name and had a couple of really good seasons so it’s good to be back and to be involved in English football where it all started for me.”

Ojamaa has most recently plied his trade with Legia Warsaw in the Polish top flight where he had experience of playing Europe’s premier club competitions.

“The last couple of years have been interesting with Legia,” he continued. “Winning the league and coming so close to the Champions League groups but also playing in the Europa league groups was a great experience and just something different.

“I really enjoyed that and, of course, it’s great to win things so I’m here for the same purpose. The team were so close to going up last year why not go one better this year? I’m excited to be part of the team and the way they play and I think it will really suit my strengths.”

Finally, the 24-year-old explained what supporters could expect from him in a Town shirt.

“I like to get on the ball, run at players and make things happen,” he said. “I know that the club has a way of playing where they really look to penetrate into the penalty box not just whip crosses in or punt long balls forward so that will really suit me: get the ball in and around the box and either create something for a teammate or have a go at goal myself.”
