Agba tips Enyimba, Pillars for NPL title

Former Heartland midfielder, Uchenna Agba, believes that the title race for the 2010/2011 season of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) will be between titleholders, Enyimba and Kano Pillars.
Agba, now with CS Sfaxien of Tunisia, said the Peoples Elephants and Pillars are heads and shoulders above the other clubs competing in this season’s competition.
He explained that the two clubs are the biggest in the country at the moment and have the best players compared to the chasing pack.
“Enyimba and Kano Pillars are the teams I can say will win the Nigerian league this season,” he said. “They have the best players and they have always had the structures. That was evident from the way the two teams played last season, which led to the title being decided on the last day before Enyimba won it.”
The Tunisian-based player said he left out his former team because they are undergoing a rebuilding process under Samson Siasia and with a new management in place.
But Agba still believes that since football throws up the impossible in terms of results the Naze Millionaires could still fancy their chances though they are outsiders for the title.
“Heartland are still a good side but for now they are going through a rebuilding period and that’s why I don’t think they might compete for the title yet. But anything can happen in football and Heartland may still come in and compete with Enyimba and Kano Pillars for the title. Like I said earlier, Enyimba and Kano Pillars really look good for the title this season,” Agba, who moved from Heartland to CS Sfaxien, early this year, said.
