“I believe we did our best to get the ticket to the continent but it was painful we couldn’t get it despite fighting fighting till the last day of the season.

“I wept immediately I discovered we didn’t make it. It’s being a long time that I felt so sad but  I must praise you for your commitment and doggedness, even though I still believe that little mistakes cost us our main target” stated the ex international.

The FIFA U-17 and U-20 World Cup silver medallists, urged the players, especially those who will still be with the team, to get prepared for the next season, with the sole aim of winning a silverware come next season.

“For those who will still be with this team next season, I want to task you to brace up for a more rewarding campaign and for those who will be leaving, make sure you make positive impact whereever. I wish you all the best”.

Earlier, the Technical Adviser of the team, Gbenga Ogunbote held a meeting with the players where the just concluded season was reviewed with a view to preparing the ground for a successful campaign next season.
