“Our target is the quarter-finals and by God’s grace we will get there. We should be expecting the best. We are not relaxing because this is just the best chance for us.
“We are not bothered about the stronger clubs. No matter how big they are, they will be 11 on the field of play, and the game will be 11 against 11. They can never play with 12.
“I’m happy we won the FCT FA Cup, because this will encourage the club’s management to invest more on the club, especially in terms of finance.
“I will take the club to where they have never been. May God help me,’’ he said.
