Idoko: Lobi Stars are ready to dominate in Africa

Idoko: Lobi Stars are ready to dominate in Africa

04 Jan 2019, 14:35

Chief executive of Lobi Stars football club Mike Idoko believes that the team will be ready to achieve great results in their upcoming CAF Champions League group open against South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns. 

According to Football Live, Lobi Stars management have reportedly obtained video recordings of their oppositions' past game and are looking to take advantage of their weaknesses. 

Idoko told the media that he is aware that Lobi Stars have been tipped as the side to least qualify in their group because of the past winners who have been of elite African football clubs.

The vice chairman, however, recalled the experienced he gained from the games against Sunshine Stars and Warri Wolves, all of which he says will come in rather handy as they seek to dominate in Africa.

He went on to also commend Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom for backing the club fully, such that the players, coaches and officials want to justify all the attention by going beyond the group stage.

The Pride of Benue cruised into the group stage of the lucrative club competition after beating Gor Mahia of Kenya on the away goal rule, following a 3-3 draw on aggregate.

They had earlier beaten UMS de Loum of Cameroon 2-1 on aggregate in the preliminary round, and Idoko says they are set for more victories.

Idoko stressed: “We don’t want to relent on our efforts. We are working as a team, that is why we have achieved what we have achieved so far.

“From the coaches to the players and backroom staff, all departments function as a unit."

“We have a pool of quality players to pick from,  and we have more options to register four players to beef up the team for the task ahead."

“This is certainly the more reason we desire to do much better. I am sure that Lobi Stars will give a worthy representation in the group stage," he said.
