Enyimba Fed Cup Hero Shifts Focus To Super Four

Hero of the Federation Cup final, Musa Mustapha of Enyimba has turned his attention to next month’s Super Four scheduled to hold in Ilorin, Kwara.
Mustapha, 21, who scored the lone goal that ensured that the Peoples Elephant won the Federation Cup at the expense of Sharks Football Club, told the official website of Enyimba that he and his team-mates are happy with their feat in the Federation Cup and would now shift attention to the Super Four.
The former FC Abuja defensive midfielder continued that the club is also looking forward to the start of the 2009/2010 campaign of the Premier League as well as the 2010 edition of the CAF Confederation Cup.
“We have won this competition and we're still happy about it, but I think for us as a team, to grow even stronger and win more trophies is important. I believe we have the right players to win a lot more tournaments and with God on our side, we shall surely win more. The Super 4 tournament would soon kick off and we're looking forward to that. After that, we'll be ready for more challenges, the league, the Federation Cup, the CAF Confederations Cup,” he said.
Mustapha, who joined the Peoples Elephant from relegated FC Abuja in the January transfer window, described the five-time Premier League winner as a world class side.
Aside expressing his happiness after ending his first season at the Aba side with a trophy, Mustapha pledged to work hard to ensure that the club can win more laurels.
“This is a team I've always wanted to be a part of so I'm very happy for everything going on right now. I'll continue to work hard for the team and give my best, because Enyimba is a world class team,” he said.
The 21-year-old, who can also play as a central defender further told the club’s website that apart from having the ambition of winning the league next season, he would have loved to represent the Peoples Elephant in the CAF Champions League since it is a highly-rated competition on the continent.
“To be honest, its the CAF Champions League trophy that is my dream trophy as a player in Africa. But since we're not competing in that tournament, then it will have to be the Confederations Cup. Of course I'd like to win the league and the cup again, but its the continental trophies that mean so much more because you come up against international oppositions. But whichever title we're fighting for, we'll give it our best shot. Like I said, Enyimba is a great club and only the best will do for the fans,” concluded Mustapha.
