Niger Tornadoes have bolstered their squad with 15 new faces following their decision to release twelve players last week ahead of the 2018/19 Nigeria Professional Football League season set to kick off December 1st 2018.
The new set of players trained with the rest of the squad Wednesday including the newly promoted players from the youth team of the club, as they were welcomed by the technical crew led by Coach Bernard Ogbe.
Speaking before the training session commenced, Bernard Ogbe disclosed that all hands must be on desk.
“It is with great pleasure that we welcome these players into the Ikon Allah family.”
“We are to work and give our best for this club, each and every one of you must be serious.”
“We welcome the players to Minna. We are positive that these acquisitions we’ve made thus far will make our supporters happy.
“We have been working tirelessly for the past few weeks to negotiate and finalize these new deals,” Ogbe said.
Niger Tornadoes placed 6th in the Nigeria Professional Football League last season with 37points.
An official announcement of the new players will be made public before the week runs out.
