Kabiru Dogo, Head Coach of Nasarawa United Football Club of Lafia, says his club’s target for the new season is to do all it takes to win the league title.
Dogo told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lafia on Wednesday that he would also do all he could to motivate his players to ensure this.
NAN reports that the “Solid Miners’’ finished fifth in the 2016/2017 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.
“I will do all I can to motivate the players to maintain a winning streak all throughout the season, starting from the first home match against defending champions Plateau United Football Club.
“We did not do badly last season. Out of 20 clubs, we came fifth. The only thing was that we did not win either the league or secure a continental spot. I want to assure you that we will come out fighting hard this season.
“Plateau United is a very good team and we are happy to be playing them first. They are our neighbours.
“We know it will be a difficult game, but we plan to approach the game with a positive mindset so as to secure the three points and kickstart our journey towards the title,’’ Dogo said.
The head coach added that, for the club to achieve its goal, preparation for the new season must be in full gear.
He thereby appealed to the club’s management to give the team full support as it prepares to kickstart its 2017/2018 season at home against Plateau United in few weeks’ time.
