A football enthusiast and one of the strong supporters of Kwara United Football Club, Engineer Olaide Ahmed has roled out motivational incentive that will propel the team to improve on its current ratings on the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) table, as the league gradually cruises to an end.
In a chat with the Media Team of Kwara United, the Engineer said that the move was to re-energise the players, and to complement the efforts of the government and the Board, at ensuring that the team makes a positive impact in the ongoing 2022/2023 Abridged League season.
Kwara United is presently 8th on the Group A log, and Engineer Olaide believes it’s never too late to roll out the plans, with six matches to end the season.
Kwara United has five matches to play in April and has played and lost one of it to Shooting Stars Sports Club in Akure last week. The team will play the next match tomorrow, Saturday, against Bendel Insurance in Benin, with other fixtures against Enyimba International (Akure), Akwa United (Uyo) and Plateau United (Akure) still to be played in April.
The team will play its last two matches in the season in May, against Nasarawa United (Akure) and Remo Stars (Ikenne).
Among the criteria to be considered in picking the Player of the Month are: the player’s work rate and contributions to the team, discipline, which captures the player’s behaviour on and off the pitch, in the period under review.
While calling on Kwarans to rally round the team, especially at this trying period, Engineer Olaide commended the State Governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for sustaining support for the team.
He equally commended the Kwara State Sports Commission, under the leadership of the Executive Chairman, Mallam Bola Mogaji, the Board, and the stakeholders, for supporting the team.
He also commended the players for the sacrifice and enduring playing without their traditional fans and supporters, owing to the ongoing re-grassing of the pitch of the Main-Bowl of the Kwara State Stadium Complex.
