Boboye promises fair play for Abia Warriors

24 December 2015, 08:05Israel Ojoko

Umuahia – New Abia Warriors coach Kennedy Boboye says he expects respect and hard work from the players as he hopes not to witch-hunt anyone.

Boboye was speaking to the players after overseeing his first training session on Wednesday at the Umuahia Township Stadium and noted that as always, fair play will be his watchword.

“I am one coach who gives all the players equal opportunity. I will never sack any player without giving him a chance,” he told them.

The former Sunshine Stars tactician said he was happy at the turn-out of players during the session as camp re-opened as well as their dedication to duty and urged them to maintain the tempo.

He expressed happiness that the majority of the boys who featured for Abia Warriors last season were still around, insisting that the team would be built around them while only a few more players would be introduced to strengthen some weak areas in order make the team more competitive.

He also commended management for retaining more than 90% of the coaching crew, pointing out that this would further make his work easier, describing the coaches he met on ground as some of the best the nation can boast of.

While promising harmonious relationship with the management, coaches and players, Boboye said he has come to Umuahia to make a mark for himself and the team calling for all hands to be on deck.
