Bayelsa Queens head coach Moses Aduku has told his players he wants to see ‘more bravery’ in them as they vie to retain the title they won last year in Lagos.
The former Flying Eagles midfielder noted that the squad seems determined to repeat what they achieved last year, defeating Nasarawa Amazons in the final of the Super 4.
Aduku told thenwfl.com: ” We have had a lot of training sessions towards the super 4 and the squad is confident as ever,”
” We would be playing against the best sides in the league and it means we have to be at our best. We need to be confident in ourselves and show what we can do on the pitch.
“My players need to be more brave and show the character of a true champion that they are. I am optimistic we will retain the title. He said
Aduku also spoke about the team missing their captain Joy Bokiri, who left the team to Turkey during the season: ” She will be missed, as she was an integral part of the team before she left for Europe.
” I have no doubt that the team will do better even without her. We played about four games without her and won three. She is indeed a valuable player anyone would want in their team. We are looking forward to winning and retaining what is ours”. He concluded.
