Your team are playing Aspirant FC in the opening match of Oba’s Cup on Saturday, what are your expectations?
I expect my players to go for victory against Aspirant FC. I am impressed with the performance of the players in the training sessions recently and I hope they will do well in the championship.
What do you know about Aspirant FC?
I don’t know anything about them. I have good players who are hungry for success so I think any team that comes to our way, we should able to win them.
Do you think your team are good for the trophy?
(Laughs) Of course yes. My team are not in this tournament for jamboree; our target is to lift the cup.
When was the club formed?
The club was formed four years ago.
Has the club won laurels in the last four years?
We have not won any laurel in the last four years but we were first runner up in the 2011 Abesan Cup and Prince Gas Cup. We lost 2-4 to Pro- stars FC after a barren draw in Abesan Cup final. We also lost 4-5 to De Sholly FC after 2-2 in the final of Prince Gas Cup.
