Chief Coach of Glory Youth Football Club of Yaba, Babatunde Shola, says his team can win theÂ forthcoming Obaâ€™s Cup.
Shola boasted that no club will stop his team from winning the title, saying that his playersÂ are in high spirits to face any team that confront them.
â€˜I will be disappointed ifÂ my team donâ€™t win this yearâ€™s Obaâ€™s Cup because the team haveÂ prepared enough. I donâ€™t see any team that are better prepared than our team,Â so winning theÂ Cup is my target,â€™ he said.
However, a date has not been fixed for this yearâ€™s Obaâ€™sÂ Cup. Although the organisers of theÂ eventÂ say the competition will start after Ramadan,Â many coaches and club owners who spoke toÂ GSG said they are not sure the competition will hold this year.
A member of the Lagos State Football Association, Alhaji Tajudeen Oladeji, has however urgedÂ the participating teams to remain calm, reiterating that the competition will commence afterÂ the Muslims fasting period.
