The Management of Warri Wolves Football Club has dedicated their resounding victory over hard fighting Elkanemi Warriors, which was their first since the league started seven weeks ago, to God.
Speaking to Journalists in Warri, shortly after the game which ended with four goals to one in favour of the team tutored by Coach Solomon Ogbeide, the Media Officer of the Club, Moses Etu said they have done that because it was God that made the victory possible.
Etu said as Christians, when it was difficult to record victory with players wasting glaring scoring chances, they took their case to God and they were very happy that HE answered them in the right way.
“The Bible asked all those who are in problem to come to HIM and they will have rest. When it was glaring that there were forces working against the team which made it difficult for our strikers to score even with an empty net, we took our case to God who has the final say and we are happy that HE answered us. Against Nembe City, the boys played better than the game against Elkanemi but they could not score but God has broken the jinx and we are grateful to HIM.”
Etu also paid tribute to the fans that remained steadfast in their support despite the numerous draws and urged them to continue to support the team.
“We want to thank our fans for their unflinching support to the team despite the team not winning. That is how to do things and we want to appeal to them to continue to support the team praying that God that made this victory possible will continue to help the team. We have the Coaches and the best crop of players so what we need is continuous prayer and it will be well at the end of the season.”
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Delta State Sports Commission, Mr Pinnick Amaju has ordered immediate payment of the bonus for the victory against Elkanemi.
“An elated Amaju could not hide his joy when he heard of the result and has not only congratulated the team but gave an order that the bonus be paid immediately. He has urged the boys not to loose focus but be ready for the task ahead.”
