Taraba FC Chairman, Tijani Babangida, has remains confidence on sustaining top league momentum for his promoted club and hoping to reinforce the team with some more experienced Nigerian Premier league players before the kick-off of the new season.
The former Ajax Amsterdam wing wizard who had fulfilled his mandate by promoting Taraba FC to the Nigerian Premier League believes that with four or five more experienced players , the team will settle well in the top league and plead to the government to back the team for more successful campaigns.
“There are more challenges before me either now or in the future and I am confident of positive achievement in either way. The truth of the matter is that I am always ready for more challenges for more success. And it will be great to do it again with Taraba FC especially in the Nigeria top league where more attentions are given to the teams," said Tijani.
"Taraba is a baby team in the top league, and we are ready to learn more to what we have both at the management level and tactical approach but we will not come so cheap."
"When you have the opportunity to compete in the big league, all you need to focus on is to settle well and try to remain in the league for another season. Our focus again now is to sustain the momentum in the top league so that we can dream of more ambitious campaign.”
“I think signing more experienced players at various positions will be more ideal to our dreams. We have bigger dreams but only motivation and diligence can really help us. I believe if we are really motivated, we will remain in the league because there are no ways we will not be playing better. FC Taraba will be a team to learn in the premier league.”
Taraba FC have clinched promotion to the Nigeria Premier League with a hard-fought 1 - 0 victory over the already promoted Giwa FC on the final day of the National League.
