Omolade Charges Enyimba


Former Enyimba captain, Ajibade Omolade, has warned the Aba side to rise up to the occasion if they want to make any impression in domestic and continental  assignments in the New Year.

The present Enyimba squad lost their fourth match this term at Plateau United after previous defeats at lowly Bukola Babes, Kano Pillars and Sunshine Stars.

Omolade, who was on the bench when his present team, Plateau United, defeated Enyimba by a lone goal told that the team look unconvincing.

“Enyimba didn’t look like champions to me. They must work hard to make an impact,” said Omolade, who spent seven seasons at Enyimba before a stint at top  Sudanese side, Al-Hilal.

The departure of top stars like Ofem Onah, Cletus Itodo and Phillip Auta, who recently won an appeal at the Nigeria Football Federation, appears to have  weakened the ‘Aba Elephant.’
