The technical adviser of Abia Warriors , Emmanuel Duetsch is optimistic that his side will have an outstanding season in coming 2019/2020 Nigeria Professional Football League Season.
Deutsch left Delta Force to join the Abia based team in the middle of last season and the Cameroonian went on to rescue team from dropping to the Nigeria National League.
While speaking on his team’s ambition in the 2019/20 NPFL has been scheduled to kick off in less than four weeks, Deutsch said he can’t wait for the season to start and expect his team to finally mount a serious title challenge.
He added that his team’s opener against Katsina United is a potential banana skin, because the Changi Boys are highly rated team in the league and also had a very good pre season outings under their belt.
“I have been looking forward to the new season and I am elated that at last an authentic date has been made public,” Deutsch told the club website in an interview.
“Our first home fixture against Kastina United is a very tricky one because the Kastina United team I watched in the ‘Ahlan cup’ is a very strong side coupled with the fact that the team is been tutored by one of the tactically sound coaches in the NPFL [Henry Makinwa],” Deutsch continued.
“This is the more reason why we would come all out to give our best from the beginning of the matches.
“I can confidently divulge the 100% readiness of the team and I know the coming season will surely be outstanding for Abia Warriors.”
