New Shooting Stars coach Ogunbote ready for new challenge

05 June 2015, 09:05

Abuja - Shooting Stars new coach Gbenga Ogunbote who replaced sacked Franklin Howard has promised to lift the Oluyole Warriors out of the relegation zone in the on-going Nigeria Professional Football League season.

Speaking to News24, Ogunbote says he is excited about his new challenge and is hopeful that Shooting Stars will start getting good results soon.

“I am very excited at joining a big team like Shooting Stars and look forward to a successful stay with the club.”

“They are a good team but unfortunately they have not been getting good results in the League this season.”

“I know that I have a huge challenge to save the team from the current situation but I am confident that we will pull through and the team will take its rightful position on the log.”

The former Sharks and Sunshine Stars coach says he will look at his team first before thinking of the next move after holding his first training with the team.

“The important thing is for me to look at the players and the squad I have and identify any weaknesses, then maybe I will think about getting a few players.”

“We all need to pray for the team to get out of the current situation and I believe we will be fine,” the brilliant coach added.

Shooting Stars are rock bottom on the league ladder with 8 points from a possible 27.
