Official: Former Marseille, Milan Left Back Taye Taiwo Joins RoPSWith a statement on their official website, Finnish Veikkausliiga side Rovaniemen Palloseura have announced the signing of former Nigeria international Taye Taiwo on a one-season deal.

RoPS is Taiwo's second club in Finland as he wore the jersey of HJK Helsinki in 2015 and 2016.

Prior to moving to Finland, the left-back represented Marseille, AC Milan, Queens Park Rangers, Bursaspor, Dynamo Kiev, Lausanne and AFC Eskilstuna.

In his first words as a RoPS player, Taiwo told the club's official website : '' I've already learned that every match can not always win, but each match can give everything.

''In the field, I do not like it if the opponent can play. I do not want to give the opponents the opportunity to control the game, but I want to be the one who plays and controls.''

The 32-year-old has over 50 caps for Nigeria's national team and was part of the Super Eagles squad at the 2010 World Cup.

Taiwo flew to
Kajaani on Wednesday to join his new teammates ahead of Saturday's Suomen Cup match against KuPS.
