Newly appointed technical adviser of Akwa United FC, Abdul Maikaba says he decided to leave Wikki Tourists of Bauchi to sign for the Uyo based side to accomplish his quest for trophies.
Maikaba who disclosed this during his official unveiling by the Uyo side yesterday, believes he can improve on the third position achieved for Wikki in the just concluded season, to win the Nigerian Professional Football league this coming season.
The former Enyimba manager told npfl.ng, he is looking forward to a rewarding season with the Promise Keepers, despite having to make what he described as the toughest decision of his life, by sacrificing continental football opportunity to challenge for the domestic trophy.
“My personal target is to win the league with the club. At Wikki Tourists, we finished third last season and fourth in the previous season. I see Akwa United as a very ambitious side with a massive support base. I look at the team as a team the Government has suported very well and what they need in return is glory.
“I came here first to see what they have on ground. I have done some homework and have already commenced training with the old players to enable me identify areas which we need to fortify. They have the best facilities in the country in terms of the stadium and training pitch and a very peaceful environment that will help me to work and achieve my target”, Maikaba told npfl.ng
Maikaba signed a two year deal and was presented to the media and fans of the club.
