–Club owner and Oil magnet says Nnewi-based team are improving game after game. Interview by Completesportsnigeria.com’s Sab Osuji, in Nnewi.
How happy are you after your team shot down Enyimba 2-0 in the league game?
First and foremost I have to thank God for my team, for Him to have made it possible for us to win and not only that play good football too. Enyimba is a great team and for us to have beaten them means we really put in a great deal of hard work. It’s indeed a great day for us and we played great football too. We are improving every day and I thank God for that.
Enyimba is a six-time champion of Nigeria so I expect you must have been exceedingly pleased with the result.
Yes, it really has shown the zeal, the passion, commitment and determination in us to move
forward as a team. It has also shown the resilience in us as a club. But then, the most important thing is that we never say never, that is the spirit of Nnewi as a town and as a
How far can you go in the league especially given the pace at which you have taken off, beating all the big teams that have visited this stadium: Rangers, Lobi and now Enyimba?
Well it depends, but I keep praying that God blesses and keep rewarding the work of ourhands, I mean our efforts so we can keep going from victory to victory as the league
progresses. Yes, the journey is still far but we want to win. We can only keep working hard and see what God has in stock for us. Surely after this victory over Enyimba we must have
gone top of the table or second which is not a bad start.
Tell us, what special incentive or bonus you have for the boys after this great feat over Enyimba?
Well, we know that motivation is the key and in fact crucial in the game but then as to what we have for them as regards today’s game, I can only say that’s an internal matter.
You speak with much passion about this club, do you plan to bring continental football down to Nnewi?
Firstly, we want to provide the platform for our youths to realize their talents and also keep the football culture of Nnewi alive. You can see the turnout today, I’m happy about that. We’ll continue to work and and see what God will have for us at the end of the season. If He so graciously decides to reward us with a continental ticket, fine and good.
Thank you sir for sharing this moment with us
