Nigerian has completed a move back to on a one-year renewable contract and has already taken part in training.

The 31-year-old joined Esperance as a free agent after his spell at Al-Ettifaq of Saudi Arabia came to an end. He has also featured for a handful of Turkish clubs.

Michael Eneramo, infamously, scored a handball goal for Esperance to knockout in the semi-final of the 2010 CAF Champions League. The two sides are due to meet in the competition’s quarter-final this season.

The Nigerian striker won all there was to win in his first spell at the club bar the Champions League. Esperance lost to Mazembe in the 2010 final. He was also the top scorer of the Tunisian league in the 2008/09 season.

Eneramo, who has been capped 10 times by Nigeria, had turned down a request to represent the Tunisian national team instead. He will compete for a starting position against strikers Khenissi and Jouini.

I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.
