Abia Warriors Technical Adviser, Emmanuel Duetsch is optimistic the 2019/2020 NPFL Season will be a major success for the team.
Deutsch left Delta Force to join the Abia based team in the middle of last season and the Cameroonian went on to rescue team from dropping to the Nigeria National League.
While speaking on his team’s ambition for the new season the Abia Warrior Boss insists there’s a chance they could mount a serious title challenge.
He added that his team’s opener against Katsina United is a potential banana skin, because the Changi Boys are highly rated team in the league and also had a very good pre season outings under their belt.
“I have been looking forward to the new season and I am elated that at last an authentic date has been made public,” Deutsch told the club website in an interview.
“Our first home fixture against Katsina United is a very tricky one because the Katsina United team I watched in the Ahlan cup is a very strong side coupled with the fact that the team is been tutored by one of the tactically sound coaches in the NPFL [Henry Makinwa],” Deutsch continued.
“This is the more reason why we would come all out to give our best from the beginning of the matches.
“I can confidently divulge the 100% readiness of the team and I know the coming season will surely be outstanding for Abia Warriors.”
