Obaje wants club glory over personal accolades


FC Ifeanyi Ubah striker Godwin Obaje has said he would swap personal honours with a continental finish for the Anambra Warriors.

The former Wikki Tourists hitman won the NPFL golden boot last season when he scored 18 league goals.

Obaje who has bagged 12 goals this season for FC Ifeanyi Ubah believes club ambition supersedes individual accolades for him.

He said he’s keen on helping FC Ifeanyi Ubah achieve its ambition this season by continuing to score more goals before the end of the season.

“It’s my responsibility to score goals because I’m a striker but I can’t do it alone, the team must continue to gel and put in over 100% performance as the season is nearing its completion”, Obaje said to NaijaFootballPlus.

“My major priority is to work with the team to meet up with our target, if the goals keep coming for me then that will be a plus. The club’s target comes first before any other thing like personal glory.

“I scored eighteen (18) goals‎ with Wikki Tourists last season and I emerged as the league top scorer and those goals helped Wikki Tourists to play in the continental championship (CAF Confederation Cup), that’s what I can refer to as club glory together with personal glory and it’s normal for me to aim to score more goals this season.

“Scoring more goals will help my club which is for me the most important achievement but personally I will love to write my name in the history books of this club as well,” he added.

“We still have the chance of making it to the continent either from the league or the AITEO cup which the team won last season. We feel depressed losing to El-Kanemi Warriors yesterday but we will go back to the drawing board to re-strategise on how to meet our set target”, Obaje concluded.

Godwin Obaje have seen the back of the net 12 times this season and he’s six goals away from meeting his personal goal record of last season.
