Morecambe Confirm The Signing Of Christian Mbulu On A Deal Until The End Of The Season
Vital Game Time
Speaking about his arrival at the Globe Arena to the official Morecambe website, Mbulu said: “I’m delighted to get it over the line, for me now it’s just about getting in the team and getting some game time.
“Really the side has been on the up recently, getting some decent results and hopefully we can push on and get up the table.
“I only live down the road, which makes it easy to concentrate on football. I can stay behind and do extra when I need to with no problems at all.
“Crewe were doing well but the main thing for a player is to play so when you’re not playing all the time it’s frustrating.
“I didn’t get the game time I wanted and the Gaffer here was willing to offer me that so it’s a good move for me.”
Helping the Relegation Fight
The 23-year-old will be hoping that he can regular appearances with Morecambe, and help steer them away from the relegation zone.
He made seven appearances for Crewe Alexandra – whom he joins from – during the first half of the 2019/20 campaign.
While Crewe currently sit in 3rd place in League Two and are battling for promotion, Derek Adams Morecambe side are 24th in the table, occupying the only relegation spot.
The Shrimpers will be hoping that they can bounce back from a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Northampton Town at home to Cambridge United in their next game. The U’s are in a bad run of form themselves, with just one in their last seven games, coincidentally in the reverse of this fixture.
Mbulu is the Shrimpers seventh signing of the window.
