Babangida to fortify Taraba FC ahead of new season

Share This

The Chairman of newly promoted FC Tarba, Tijjani Babangida, has admitted he will need to reinforce his team for the challenges of the top flight.

FC Taraba lost 2-1 to hosts Enugu Rangers in a pre-season friendly on Sunday and former international Babangida said as much as he was impressed with his team’s showing, there will be a need to fortify the team.

“I must say that I am highly impressed with our game today despite the loss,” said Babangida, who made history by guiding Taraba to a first-ever appearance in the Nigeria top flight.

“The aim of playing the match was achieved as we have noticed some of the weak links in the team and after a meeting with the technical crew; we will know the players to get into the team. We need to re-enforce the team for the task ahead.”

The former Ajax Amsterdam winger further said, “We are a very young side in the league and will need to muster enough courage and determination to rub shoulders with the big boys of the league.
