Heartland's Obi Gives Reasons for the Tie with Enyimba

Posted : 19 May 2024

Heartland FC head coach, Christian Obi, has disclosed that the friendly game with Enyimba was meant to gauge the performance of the club's players who were yet to gain much playing time in the ongoing season.


The Naze Millionaires were stunned 4-0 by the rampant People's Elephant at the Enyimba International Stadium, Aba, on Wednesday, but Obi said that he and his technical crew did not regret the action.


The former Flying Eagles player said the game provided the club coaches with firsthand information on the true state of his remaining players, and he would seize the opportunity again in the future if another buildup game is available.


He charged the club's fans to continue supporting the team despite the current phase it is going through, as the players, coaches, and other officials of the team are looking forward to ending the season on a strong note, starting with the home fixture against Gombe United next weekend.


"We should not take the result of the game as something important. We got the offer to play the friendly game with Enyimba and decided to use it to test our other players who have not been given enough chances to play," Obi said.


"The coaches have taken notes of what transpired in Aba, and it will be used to correct the players going forward.


"The team is going through a rough patch, but we are determined to end the season positively.


"The game with Gombe United is our present concern, and we are preparing very hard to ensure we get the maximum points in the game and subsequent games."
