He said: “The team is just coming up, I know they are yet to fully blend together, I believe with time and every match, they will keep improving.”
He assured the players of good welfare package ahead of the 2023/24 Nigeria Women Football League slated to kick off on November 15.
“I’m aware they are in a very competitive group, but what I’m seeing here, there is prospect for them to become a strong team.”
He later presented a cash gift to the players for their sterling performance against Ekiti Queens.
