Kano Pillars midfielder, Nzube Anaezemba says the team is more than ready to reignite it’s title challenge for the remainder of the 2018 season.
The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) embarked on World Cup break in May but had since failed to resume due to the lingering crisis rocking the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) which has affected League Management Company (LMC), organizer of the NPFL.
Anaezemba however believes strongly in the mental strength of the squad, saying the unwanted suspension break won’t deter their ambition.
“As far as we are concerned here, the break is practically over and we’ve been working towards resumption,” said Nzube to Naijafootballplus.com during an exclusive chat.
“We are not too happy with all the happenings disturbing the continuation of the league but we remain optimistic and we are all looking forward to the resumption. It could be anytime, so we are ready when the league is ready too.”
On the ambition of the club and the obstacles the team faced before the break, the player beamed confidence that their destiny is still in the hands.
“We played a draw against Rivers United before the break, it wasn’t good enough for us and we sit third currently; that’s then, we are more focused than ever and I believe that having all our players who were with the National team back will spur us this time,” the former Enyimba midfielder concluded.
Nzube joined Kano Pillars from Rivers United, he has featured prominently for the Sai Masu Gida this season and has been part of all mid-season friendly games.
Pending confirmation of the league’s resumption, Kano Pillars will file out against El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri on Matchday 25 at the Sanni Abacha Stadium, Kano.
