“I feel very excited and I am proud of my boys. I knew they would qualify even though they played against a tough opponent. We expected the victory because I know my team very well,” Amaefule, also known as Khalifat told dasportstainment247.com.

“We are hoping to beat Heartland Comets in the semi final so that we can qualify for the final. We beat them 4-1 during the NLO playoffs in Port Harcourt and we going in search of another history in the next game with them.”

Kun Khalifat defeated Heartland Comets 4-1 in Port Harcourt and picked the sole NLO playoffs ticket from the centre before losing in the final to another Owerri based Campos FC 2-1.

The young football administrator also said that ensuring that young footballers have the adequate platform to showcase their talents remains his motivation and that he won’t stop until he sees young ones doing something profitable with their talents.

“I can never be deterred. In destiny you chase more than twice and I believe in myself that God that brought me to this stage will give me what I want.

“I want to play in the NLO, NNL and also see Kun Khalifat in the Premier League. That is the vision. The motivation is to take off all these young boys away fromm the streets. The most important thing for me is to give them a platform to showcase their talents.”

Amaefule also hinted that plans are at advance stage to have some players leave for Spain for trials with Malaga next month.

“Nigerian league is not really the plan. By God’s grace from March, some of my players will be going to Spain to have trials with Malaga to be precise.”
