Maik­aba sat­is­fied with de­but sea­son in Akwa United

Daily Trust - - SPORT - By David Ngobua

With six matches to end the 2016/2017 Nige­rian Pro­fes­sional Foot­ball League, NPFL sea­son, Akwa United’s Tech­ni­cal Ad­viser, Abdu Maik­aba has ex­pressed sat­is­fac­tion with the per­for­mance of his team.

Af­ter a slow start, Maik­aba who joined Akwa United in the sum­mer af­ter guid­ing Wikki Tourists to third po­si­tion last sea­son has turned around the for­tunes of Akwa United with heart­warm­ing re­sults.

It’s a com­plete con­trast of sta­tus for Akwa who ended last sea­son in 14th po­si­tion and are now one of the top favourites for league ti­tle and con­ti­nen­tal tick­ets.

“It is an in­ter­est­ing sea­son. Although we did not start well, later as we con­tin­ued to work hard, we are now in the third po­si­tion, and with six matches to go, if we can main­tain the level of pro­gres­sion, there’s like­li­hood that we can im­prove in our po­si­tion may be sec­ond or be­ing first at the end of the sea­son.

“The most im­por­tant thing is for my play­ers to re­main fo­cused and see what God will do for us at the end but for sure there are good signs that the way we are go­ing, a very good thing will hap­pen to our team,” he said.
