With the second phase of the 2022/23 Nigeria Premier Football League Season set to commence, Nasarawa United’s winger, King Osanga, has assured that they would turn around the fortune of the Club.
Osanga(MON) who featured in five out of the nine games for the Solid Miners in the first stanza of the league and scored two goals, stated this to the Club’s Media on Monday in Lafia.
“We are battle ready for the second half of the league, even though our start to the season wasn’t good enough.
“We are bringing our heads together for the survival of the team. Hopefully, we are up and ready for the second stanza.
“We work as a collective team. No tree can form a forest. I will always do my best by bringing my wealth of experience to take the team out of the position we ended in the first stanza.
“We don’t deserve to be where we are in the league. You know the history of the Club, but we can finish among the best at the end of the season.
“We will approach each game as it comes, and this begins from our next game away to Remo Stars whom we beat 2-0 in our last home game before the league went on a break.
“Regarding boosting the team with some new legs, I think it’s a welcome development and we hope that whoever is brought into the team would add to the progress of the team.”
The Nigerian junior international won the FIFA U-17 World Cup for Nigeria in 2007 in South Korea and also adorned Nigeria’s colours at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt in 2009.
Nasarawa United started the 2022/23 league campaign on a rather sour note, suffering six defeats, winning only two and drawing one game in the abridged Group ‘A’ fixtures, sitting at the 9th position, with seven points.”
But the Coach Bala Nikyu-led team is doing everything possible for better performance upon resumption, with their first match away to Remo Stars whom they had beaten 2-0 in the first leg in Jos on 20th February, 2023.
