Warriors defender Alec Mudimu says the need to play in the Champions League pushed him to join Moldovan club Sheriff FC.

The 24-year old signed a contract after spending two-and-half seasons in the modest Welsh Premier League with Cefn Druids.

Speaking to H-Metro, Mudimu revealed  why he snubbed some teams who were interested in him.

“There were a lot of clubs interested but this club (Sheriff) plays Champions League football at a very high standard.

“And I believe I need to play with the best players around the world to improve, “he said.

Mudimu is expected to make his debut at Sheriff in January once he is registered.
