Enyimba Will Win Super Four - Odita

Captain of Enyimba, Okey Odita, is confident that his side has the capable of emerging champion of this year’s edition of the Super Four, which got underway on Tuesday in Ilorin.
Odita believes that winning the Federation Cup and finishing third last season in spite of a dismal performance in the earlier parts of the campaign last term has boosted the side’s confidence ahead of the coming season.
The 25-year-old central defender knows that the task of adding the Super Four trophy to the rich silverware cabinet of the Peoples Elephant before the beginning of the 2009/2010 season would not come easy.
“I am confident that Enyimba will the Super Four. We have won the Federation Cup and we finished in third position last season and that is the kind of things that we need to do in every game. Winning the Federation Cup and ending third in the league have given us enough confidence to play in the Super Four. But I know that it would not be easy for us because the three other clubs too want to start on a winning note,” he said.
When asked if he dreads any of his club’s opponents in the Super Four, Odita, who turns 26 in October this year, said he does not harbour any fear for Bayelsa United, Heartland Football Club and Warri Wolves.
He pointed out that the Peoples Elephant as Enyimba is also called faced the same sides in last season’s campaign in the Premier League and know what they are capable of doing.
“By God’s grace we will overcome our opponents in the Super Four. Remember that we have played against the same teams last season and we know what they can do and I believe they too know what we can do to them on the field. So we are not afraid of any of them,” he offered.
Ahead of the new season, the former Enugu Rangers’ defender is keen to lead his side against 19 other clubs in the Premier League starting with the visit of Lobi Stars to the Enyimba Sports Complex in Aba next month.
He believes that the five-time Premier League winner has the side that can a sixth title in the 2009/2010 season.
“I want to lead my club to win the Premier League trophy next season. We have a good team now and we are really getting to know each other very well and I know that next season will be our own,” he told naijaligue.blogspot.com.
