NPFL'23: God's time is the best - Bala reacts after Nasarawa United's first win of the season

Published on: 13 February 2023

A big sigh of relief it was for Technical Adviser of Nasarawa United, Bala Nikyu who got his first win of the 2022/2023 Nigeria Premier Football League, NPFL campaign after a poor start, reports.

Bala while celebrating his team's win against Kwara United, disclosed that the win came at a time God wanted it and hopes it will open more doors for the team.

The former Boss spoke with newsmen after Solid Miners courtesy of goals from King Osanga and Chinedu Ohanachom saw off the Afonja Warriors by two goals to nil at the New Jos Township Stadium.

"It's never our wish to push the league to this extent before we start getting result, however, God's time is the best, Bala said.

"It's a good turnaround for us, and hopefully, God has opened the doors for us.

He disclosed that the win will serve as a huge boost to the team's morale.

"This win is a huge morale boost for us to work more.

"At times, if results are not forthcoming, you wonder where the problems are coming from, and you begin to ask where you should start from.

"Positive results cover a lot of things and we appreciate today's outcome despite squandering lots of goal scoring chances.

Bala also had time to react to the resignation of his compatriot, Coach Azeez Muhammad of Kwara United after the game.

"Regarding the resignation of my colleague at Kwara United, Coach Azeez Muhammad, it's quite unfortunate.

"He is good Coach. But this job of ours is quite hazardous, and you have to stand strong for unforseen situations.

"He did his best to get results for his team, but football is black and white. You can't predict it.

"I feel he was not comfortable with the results and so decided to step down. I wish him well in his future endeavour."

Nasarawa United will be traveling to Benin to play group A leaders, Bendel Insurance at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium on Wednesday.
