Adepoju sees a bright future for Shooting Stars

By Kate Obodo
General Manager of Shooting Stars Football Club of Ibadan, Mutiu Adepoju has said he sees a bright light at the end of the tunnel for the Oluyole Warriors despite the not too impressive performance in the league so far. The Ibadan-based side drew at home against Enyimba two Wednesdays ago but Adepoju says the team is beginning to find its rhythm.

Shooting, as the club is popularly known, are competing in the Glo Premier League again after a few years in the lower division and Adepoju believes that they will remain in the elite division for a long time.

The former Super Eagles player is hopeful that happy times will  surely come for the team, as he plans for better outing with hard work on the part of the coaching crew and players. In his bid to ensure he has a solid team, the former Racing Santandar of Spain player sacked a couple of players and brought in six fresh players to strengthen the team. That effort has already began to pay off.

Against Enyimba, Adepoju said they had planned on picking the maximum points but failed because they could not convert their chances. According to him, the draw with Enyimba was like an home loss but promised to do better in subsequent games.

“It is really not a good result specially drawing with Enyimba at home, a win would have been ideal but since it’s like this, we will do our best in other games and make sure we get maximum three points which we are going to work towards.

“Generally, the team  is gradually coming up and we are prepared to work even harder to meet the demands of the Premier League,” he said
