“We are working on the path of returning the team back to its former glory, so we want to get as high as possible in the league table and see how we can secure a continental ticket,” he said.
Meanwhile, in a separate chat with the team’s head coach, Fatai Amoo, he said despite the tough nature of the Nigerian premier league, Shooting Stars will perform better this season as quality and experienced players have been recruited to boast the squad.
“Given the professionals on the board and government releasing subvention for the team, I believe we would attain a better level of success and our presence will be felt at the end of the season.”
“This season will be tough as every team wants to play in the continent. We are adequately ready for the challenge and I am optimistic Shooting Stars will perform better this season.”
“We want to have result and performance. We are working towards playing good football and picking every three points available in all matches. I am pleading with our fans to be patient with the team as both good football and results do not come overnight.
But with time, so time will help the boys to jell together. It would ignite fulfillment and joy in the heart of the fans as they would enjoy their money.”
