After leading Enyimba Football Club to a record eighth Nigeria Professional Football League title, technical adviser Usman Abd’Allah has described the 2018/19 season as one in which the two-time African champions achieved all of its goals.
The People’s Elephant, earlier in the month, put up a class act to win four of five matches at the NPFL Championship Playoffs, including a compelling 3-0 thrashing of Akwa United in their last match of the tournament.
The performance helped Abd’Allah’s side seal the NPFL crown and claim a place in next season’s CAF Champions League.
The club’s hopes of a domestic double were, however, dashed by a 2-3 loss to Smart City FC in the Aiteo Cup round of 32, but Abd’Allah has focused on the positives, insisting that the team reached all targets laid out for the season.
“It could have been nice to get the double this year but all the same the most important thing is that we won the league,” the gaffer stated.
