“I want to make sure that in Abia warriors, there should be a replacement of the senior team from the junior team. Am looking forward to the possibility of having at least players that will play in the second team; the team B, not more than 21 years.


“We have to work towards making sure that they are empowered, and they are paid a certain amount of money to at least feed themselves. I just need about twenty players for a second team; one goal keeper and the other will be keeping with the senior team, they will make two goalkeepers but one will always train with the senior team and am going to register them for the FA Cup and try to look for games for them so that we will not be having this issue of if we want to recruit players for the senior team, we will start looking from outside, at least at the end of every season, we should be able to have five players from the junior team into the senior team” Obuh said.
