phase is to ensure the side perform far better than it did in the

previous season.

“We recruited 18 players, dropped 21 and retained 19 for the

upcoming football season.

“We recruited quality players to add value to our squad,

especially in our attack which was our weakest point last


“Already the new recruits have shown their class the pre-season

tournaments – the Gold Cup and the Ahlan Cup 2017.

“The team is stronger now compared with what we had last


“We attracted quality players from the best club sides in the

country, including Enyimba, Akwa United, Plateau United, Lobi

Stars and Rivers United.
