11 February 2014, 17:12

Ilorin - ABS FC General Manager, Alloy Chukwuemeka said that the club was battle-ready to stage a quick comeback to the Glo Premier League next season.

Chukwuemeka told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin that the players and officials were aware of the enormous mandate before them following their relegation to the Nigeria National League last season.

He said the welfare of players and officials would be given topmost priority to enable them to fully concentrate on their job.

“We want to put smiles on the faces of our fans again by ensuring we return to the Premier League next season. We will continue to run the club in a professional way with respect to FIFA standards.

“We are one of the few clubs which give young players the chance to prove themselves. The proprietor is not happy about what happened last season but we will justify the confidence he reposed in us,’’ Chukwuemeka said.

The former Yobe Desert FC spokesman said the club's resolve to pay the players Premier League allowances was a sign that the management was serious about returning to the country's elite division.

It would be recalled that ABS unveiled a 30-man squad last month in their buildup to the 2013/2014 season of the NNL which will kick off on February 15.
