Daily Trust - - SPORT - By David Ngobua @ Ngob­ua­david

Newly ap­pointed Chief Coach of Warri Wolves, Mansur Ab­dul­lahi has said his im­me­di­ate task is to psy­che up his em­bat­tled play­ers to bring back their win­ning men­tal­ity.

Speak­ing to Daily Trust af­ter Wolves won their first league match un­der him, the for­mer Su­per Fal­cons as­sis­tant coach said be­fore his ap­point­ment, his play­ers were to­tally de­mor­alised and needed a good psy­chol­o­gist to work on them.

The coach, who said Sun­day’s 3-1 win over Akwa United was the big­gest home win for Warri Wolves in two sea­sons, cited the vic­tory as a sign of bet­ter days for Warri Wolves say­ing they will build on that vic­tory to steer away from rel­e­ga­tion.

“This is my first time to take charge of a premier league side but I have what is re­quired to save Warri Wolves from rel­e­ga­tion.

“What I am do­ing at the mo­ment is to psy­che up the play­ers and make them be­lieve that they are good and they can do it.

“Be­fore I ar­rived, morale was at the low­est ebb. Th­ese are play­ers are used to big money but at the mo­ment, they have to man­age what they see so it has not been easy. But I am work­ing on them to make sure they ad­just to the sit­u­a­tion on ground,” he said.

Ab­dul­lahi also said although he has taken over Wolves at a very dif­fi­cult time, he is en­joy­ing the sup­port of members of the tech­ni­cal crew and the play­ers so he would do his best to make sure that the club is not rel­e­gated.

Warri Wolves are presently 14th on the log with 34 points.
