Former Bayelsa Queens goal poacher, Rafiat Sule has revealed the reason she left the club for big spending Edo Queens.
The two time top goalscorer of the NWFL Premiership told thenwfl.com that she was convinced over a move to Edo Queens after one conversation with Technical Manager Rollandson Odey, snubbing interest from other top clubs in the process.
The former Rivers Angels forward never planned to leave the ‘Restoration Ladies’ on her second stint with the club. But she wanted to reunite with the man who gave her all the support needed at Bayelsa Queens when she was very young.
” I never thought I would leave Bayelsa Queens so soon. I didn’t see that coming, my teammates and coaches were surprised over the move.
” Rolandson Odeh has been more than just a coach to me. He supported me and made me a better player when I was young at Bayelsa Queens. So it was difficult for me to ignore him when he asked me to join him at Edo Queens.
” I was convinced over a move to Edo Queens, just after one conversation with Odeh. I thought well about it and felt Moses Aduku would be unhappy about it. This is because he was also a great coach and someone who encouraged me a lot.
” Rolandson told me about the plans and ambitions of Edo Queens. I was convinced more when they started signing some good players in the league. I wanted a new challenge and Edo Queens was a good destination for me.” She concluded.
