Oldham`s new striker Shefki Kuqi says that it was Paul Dickov`s passion for the game that helped him make the decision to join up with the Latics.

The 34-year-old marked his debut by scoring in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Huddersfield.

The Kuqi said: ‘Paul phoned me at the end of last season but the time wasn’t right.

‘I had a few good offers but this was the best option. I came here because of Paul.

‘He has the passion and enthusiasm and always gives 100% – that rubs off on the players.’
