Nobody gets a trophy when you come first says Abdalla

Nobody gets a trophy when you come first says Abdalla

Enyimba head coach Usman Abdalla has made it rather clear he is not aiming for the NPFL top position.

Abdalla, who currently has Enyimba at position two with six points behind leaders Enugu Rangers, has no real ambitions to toppled the Flying Antelopes.

“We are only trying to qualify (for the playoffs),” coach Abdalla said to Football Live.

“Nobody gets a trophy when you come first, second or third; so it’s just to qualify. The most important thing is that I only want to look at the fourth position of the table. The more Enyimba is far away from the team that is in the fourth position, the safer we are.

The former Super Eagles international summed up his comments by suggesting that the play-offs will be the start of the real business.

“The playoffs is going to be a totally different scenario. We will keep on working until we reach the playoffs, then from there we start all over again,” concluded Abdalla.
