Niger
Tornadoes head coach, Abdullah Biffo has dismissed claims that his side will
struggle in the elite division, despite failing to record a win in its first
three fixtures of the season.
Tornadoes
are one of the four teams promoted from the Nigeria National League (NNL) to the
Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) at the start of the season and have
managed one draw at home and two defeats on the road thus far.
Biffo
in a chat with www.npfl.ng shortly after his
side’s loss to Rangers International at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, on Sunday,
expressed optimism that Minna side would overcome the seeming early poor run of
form and compete well.
“The
fact remains that we have dropped another three points and that is not what we
bargained for. It was our third game of the season and we are yet to record a
win and it gives all of us major concern. I believe we will get it right in the
next few games.
We
will pick up from here and win games. We have had only three out of 38 matches;
there are 35 more games to play before one can make any concrete statement as
regards the season. We have not even gone halfway yet. No team can at the
moment know where they will finish in the league. It is too early to make
predictions. As the league progresses we hope to improve”, the Coach told www.npfl.ng.
