CHAN: Open letter to Salisu Yusuff 

Dear Coachito,

Sincere condolences on the loss of your mother and Happy Sallah celebrations.

I’m sure you’re aware that the month of July is the only one covering your all important assignment with the Home-based Super Eagles as your first competitive game comes up on August 11.

Since you’re not new to this as well, I’m sure you know that assembling a quality squad of home based players requires a lot of training and camping time so the time to put your hands on deck is NOW!

As you know, we are an unforgiving nation and nobody will make excuses for you about the NFF’s failure to provide you with necessary ingredients for the task ahead. Nigerians will log it in for you as failure if you fail, God forbid!

Well, having watched no fewer than 35 league games since the start of the season and having also watched each of the 20 teams at least twice, I bring forward a list of some credible, extremely consistent and non-sentimental 23 players which of course you can add “your players” if many of them are not there already. 

Have a look-in

GK: Sunday Rotimi – Ikechukwu Ezenwa – Ojo Olorunleke

RB: Osas Okoro (sub: Ifeanyi Nweke)

LB: Daniel Itodo (sub: Chukwuebuka Anaekwe)

DM: Kelly Kester (sub: Jimmy Ambrose)

CB: Orji Kalu (sub: Emmanuel Ariwa)

CB: Nelson Ogbonnaya (sub: Jamiu Alimi)

RW: Sikiru Olatunbosun (sub: Etor Daniel)

CM: Lazarus Fan (sub: Shedrack Asiegbu)

CF: Sunday Adetunji (sub: Stephen Odey)

AM: Alhassan Ibrahim (sub: Chukwuka Onuwa)

LW: Stanley Dimgba (sub: King Osanga)

Once again, do not forget that you need ample time in training these players as you will have to emphasize on things they don’t teach them in our clubs.

The LMC Calendar for the second stanza also helps you to have the players from Monday – Friday since there are only one midweek game in each month till the end of the season.

I wish you the best of luck in your assignment.

Your fan,ALOHA 

Enyimba? There’s absolutely nothing to say about the club. When there’s something newsworthy and of good report, we’d share here. 

Have a great day everyone.
