Peter Odemwingie talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
New Rotherham United signing Peter Odemwingie has backed himself to repay the faith of new boss Kenny Jackett after completing a move to AESSEAL New York Stadium this evening.
The former West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City striker has penned a deal until January to become Jackett's first signing as Rotherham manager.
After securing a deal with the Millers, the Nigeria international was keen to thank Jackett for giving him the opportunity to return to the professional ranks.
"It went quickly. Only a few days ago I got in touch with the manager Kenny Jackett," Peter told Millers Player HD.
"Knowing him, he is a manager that believes in you and that gives me a lot of positivity. He obviously believes in me and thinks I can do a job for him, so I am looking forward to a new start and doing my best for the team."
The former Premier League hot-shot says that the situation that Rotherham find themselves in will give him an extra edge, with the ex-Bristol City loanee claiming the 'pressure' will help bring out his very best.
"I am looking forward to this," he added.
"I love pressure as a player, I love situations like this, and a lot of times I have delivered, I hope it will be the same in this club. I want to play out of my skin because there is a level that I want to get back to and the only way to get back to that is to do my best and work really hard.
"It has been a while but I have tried to stay fit and keep on top of things. I have had a few training sessions in the last few days and I feel ready to go, I don't think it will take me long to get back to my best."
