With congratulatory messages flocking in from all quarters to our young tactician following his first major silverware some have extended their generosity by calling on coach Kanu to beef up his squad with veteran players.
The tactician was quick to respond to this as he stated categorically that he shall stick with his current crop of youngsters who brought the club glory and dismissed the possibility of storming the transfer market to look for veteran players.
“We shall first of all stick with what we have. If it is beefing up then it shall be on one or two areas that we may feel inadequate and that will not be bringing veterans. We should remember that it is the same youngsters who have won this trophy. By winning it, they showed the world that they are ready for continental football. If they were not ready they would have fought as they did to win it. So they are equal to the task,” he told Sharks TV.
He also being a first timer at the continental scene, Kanu reminded us what the team did as first timers in the league last season
“Last year we were first timers in the league yet we performed very well. We finished third, we reached the cup final, we produced the top scorer and the best goalkeeper and I was also coach of the year. If we did such in our first time in the league then I believe that nothing limits us from doing well at the continental scene,”
