Abdullahi braces up for Warri Wolves rescue mission
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.
