Efugh Sets Sight On First Career Title

Chinedu Efugh has said he would want to win his first title with his Premier League side, Heartland Football Club.
The central defender, who made a switch from eternal rival, Enugu Rangers, to Heartland FC, in January this year, is keen to cap his first full season with the Naze Millionaires with his first career league title.
After spending four seasons at Enugu Rangers without winning a domestic title, Efugh said he is looking to play a key role in winning the Premier League title for Heartland FC in the next campaign.
Already, Efugh playing in a quite strange role as a holding midfielder ensured Heartland FC won the first silverware in the pre-season tournament, the Glo Super Four.
The central defender was accountable for Heartland FC’s lone goal against league champion, Bayelsa United, that secured the Super Four tournament and believes that it is a sign of good things to come in the regular season.
He also hopes that he would play an integral part of the club’s challenge for a first league title since 1993 when the Naze Millionaires won the trophy as Iwuanyanwu Nationale.
“We have started the season quite well in the Super Four and it was good to be part of the team here (in Ilorin),” began Efugh. “Winning the Super Four was really good and being the player who ensured that we won the Super Four. For me, to score the goal to win the cup is a good omen for us ahead of the season.”
