.thumbs up players’ hard work
Katsina United head coach, Azeez Muhammed has stressed that the Chanji Boys’ first away win of the season never came to him as a surprise based on the massive improvement that has taken place in the team since he came in.
The Chanji Boys had been bad travelers since the start of the current season but that record changed on Wednesday when Joseph Atule’s effort off Samuel Kalu’s assist got them the three points against Jigawa Golden Stars at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna.
Muhammed who coached a team in Sudan before he made a detour back home told journalists that the away win was only a reward for their hard work and has vowed that they would get a few more away points before the end of the current campaign.
“It was a good game. We are happy we took the three points away from home but I know it will come. Normally, as long as you are doing well away points will come,” Muhammed told journalists in Kaduna.
“It is a matter of patience and hard work and you will see it has paid off from the performance of the boys. We hope more will come. The boys are doing well and they playing according to how we want them to play. We know the sky is the limit for them.
“It is just hard work. When you know what you have and that there must be a good relationship between you and the players. It is important to know the problems of the team.
“We can say that we have almost the same set of players that the team started the season with, I just tried to identify the problems of the team and to see how to rectify the problem and arrange it. I thank God it is working now.”
The vital win has taken Katsina United to the 13th spot with 37 points from 30 games ahead of their weekend home game with FC IfeanyiUbah.
