Experienced NPFL campaigner Jonathan Zikiye is confident of a season turn around for his team Sunshine stars.
Sunshine Stars are still without a victory this season but Zikiye says he is not bothered and that ‘its only a matter of time before things turn around’
‘We had a slow start to the season but we still have thirty-seven more matches to go so we are not bothered.
‘We have a good set of players who are exciting to play with and it’s just a matter of time before we turn things around.’ Zikiye told DiegwuSports
Zikiye who joined Sunshine Stars this season after successful spells at defunct Dolphins FC, Kano Pillars and MFM FC revealed his reason for joining the Akure based side.
According to him, the prospect of working with experienced coach Kabiru Dogo was the reason behind his season.
‘The club (Sunshine) have a good project and ambition especially towards getting to the top of Nigerian football. In addition to that the team has a good experienced coach in Kabiru Dogo. A coach who every top footballer wants to work with. I think that also influenced me in my decision to join the team’ Zikiye said.
‘As a footballer, you have enter every match with the believe that you will win it. So we will play against Abia Warriors with the believe that we can win the match.
‘So far we have created so many chances in our 1st two matches but unfortunately converting them has been an issue. We we can work on that then we have a great chance against Abia Warriors.’
