- Says club will finish well this term
Chairman of Akwa United FC, Paul Bassey says he is confident the club will finish well this term.
Bassey told Saturday Sunsports early this week that unlike the previous seasons, the Promise Keepers wont struggle to escape relegation when the league race comes to an end.
“We are definitely going to finish well that I can assure fans of the club. We wont struggle to escape relegation as the club has always done,” Bassey
The veteran sports journalist was full of praise for Akwa Ibom state governor, Udom Emmanuel who he said has been paying special attention to the team in spite of the dwindling financial fortunes of the state.
“Akwa United is one of the best funded teams in the country today. The governor has been wonderful. He is paying good attention to the team,
so we have no option but to do well,” Bassey said.
He said the club would during the mid season try to strengthen its squad,
even as he regretted the injuries rocking the team.
“At least five of our players are down with injuries and it has affected
us a great deal. We would go for some fresh legs during the mid season
Akwa United mid week lost away to Rivers United and would this
weekend face 3SC at her Uyo Nest of Champions home.
