Technical adviser of FC Ifeanyi Ubah, Mitko Dobrev has urged his players to go all out on Sunday when they face MFM FC in the NPFL match day 38 fixture at Agege, Lagos.
Dobrev who was speaking from the team’s camp in Lagos also said that getting a continental ticket for next season will be a perfect gift for the club proprietor and president, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah.
“Getting a continental ticket will be a very big thing for our club. As you know our project is just two years old so if we are able to get the ticket it will be a very big present to our President, Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah who has invested heavily in this club and also been there for us,” the Belgian said.
When asked about the readiness of the team for Sunday’s big match against MFM FC, Dobrev was optimistic of the team’s ability to deliver on Sunday.
“It’s been an intense one month for us, we have played a lot of matches and also traveled some long distances with the last being the Fed Cup semifinals in Kaduna. However, we are fully focused and motivated for Sunday’s match and we will do our very best. MFM are a very good side but am sure that if we play to our strength, we will get a win. It is going to be a tough game but I am confident we will get the victory,” Dobrev added.
The Bulgarian tactician went on to say that He will prefer the Champions League to the Confederation Cup: “I would love us to pick up the Champions League. It’s the most prestigious competition in Africa. I have had the honor of playing in that tournament with Hearts of Oak, Heartland and Enyimba and I would love to have that feeling again. Moreover the expose my players will get from this tournament is another reason why I prefer the Champions League.”
FC Ifeanyi Ubah are 3rd on the table, needing a win to pick up a continental ticket.
