General Manager of Lobi Stars Football Club of Markurdi, Barnabas Imenge says that the club is poised to win this year’s Federation cup in appreciation of what the Benue State Governor; Samuel Orton is doing to develop the state.
Lobi Stars will this evening at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere meet fellow Premiership side Akwa United in the finals of the 2015 Federation Cup.
He told New Nigerian Sports that the team which first won the title in 2003 before emerging runners- up in 2012 is fully prepared not only to lift the prestigious trophy for the second time but book a continental ticket.
“My team is fully prepared for today’s encounter. The Government and people of Benue State are fully behind the team and both the technical crew and the players have resolved they will win the trophy as a mark of appreciation for what Governor Ortom is doing to reposition the state since he assumed office in May this year.”
According to the ex- international, Lobi Stars under experienced Coach Justin Tenger and his technical crew has what it takes to win the trophy and they have already mapped out their strategy towards achieving that goal.
“We are not expecting an easy match but you should remember that our coach, Justin Tenger once handled Akwa United and he understands their antics.
“You will remember that we met twice in the Premier League where we defeated them 2-0 in the first leg, but they ran away with a lone goal in the reverse fixture. But this time around, they will not escape defeat” Imenge assured.
