Enyimba’s Amapakabo targets double

01 October 2013, 10:25

Abuja - Imama Amapakabo, the head coach of Enyimba FC of Aba on Monday said that he was confident that the club would stay on course to win the ongoing 2012/2013 Globacom Premier League.

Amapakabo told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos via telephone that the club’s target was to clinch two trophies, having won the Federation Cup on September 15.

The Aba-based side currently occupies the second position on the league standings with 55 points from 34 matches.

"Enyimba, as a club, aspires for greatness, which is why we are one of the most successful teams in the league.

"I believe that we can add to our Federation Cup glory by winning the league and that dream is now within touching distance,” Amapakabo said.

He noted that Enyimba’s successful run was as a result of the commitment of the team's management in repositioning it as one of the country’s best.

"Results are beginning to show and this is as a result of hard work and commitment of government and the club’s management.

"We have a tradition which we intend to hold in high esteem and I’m optimistic things will turn out good for the club,” he said.

The coach said those who doubted the club’s ability at the beginning of the current season, are shocked at the progress the club has made.

Amapakabo added that the club had a framework it stood by, which eventually did the trick.
