Published on: 08 June 2023


Sunshine Stars manager, Edith Agoye believes his team has performed to the best of their capacity at the ongoing Nigeria Professional Football League Super Six despite being second from behind, reports.

The Akure based club is fifth on the table after drawing two and losing one of their three matches.

After a 1-0 defeat to Rivers United on the opening day, Sunshine stars have pick a point each against Bendel Insurance and Remo Stars.

In all of these, Agoye has refused to compare his team to another side in the competition claiming his team is barely a year old.

“Among the six sides in this tournament, Sunshine Stars are the underdogs. We are underdogs because this is a new team.

“This is a team that is built for seven months and we’re playing against teams who have been together for about three years, some clubs four years. It’s not always easy.

“We’ve been able to show that we can play and we can compete against any other side in the tournament,” Agoye told ACLSport.

He further stated that there is gulf in quality among the teams competing in the Super 6 tournament.

“I think there is no gulf in class and gulf in form among the six teams,” said the Shooting Star legend.

Sunshine Stars will play series leader, Enyimba, on Friday at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Lagos.
