“I always want to play when Ikechukwu is on the pitch, he's
a good player. I think we created several scoring chances and I'm happy to
score the three goals and I'd like to dedicate to him my three beautiful
goals.” Osadiaye told News24 after the game.
“He (Ibenegbu) is a very intelligent player, he makes things
easier for me to play off him and I can only give him credit. He gave two
beautiful assists, the second one was the best one, he's good with the outside
of the foot, I knew when I pointed into the space, he would play it perfectly
and I just had to go for it,” he explained.
“We helped one another in offense and defence, so it was
good for the team to get the win and continue to put Enyimba (on top of the
league table) under pressure.”
