.Warns Ahead MFM Tie
With Nigeria coach, Gernot Rohr expected to be a spectator in Sunday’s tie between MFM and El Kanemi Warriors’, George Michael advises that players should avoid being overwhelmed by the occasion.
In a bid to continue scouting for players for the African Nations Championship (CHAN), the Super Eagles tactician is scheduled to be at the Agege Stadium to witness the encounter between two of the top three teams in the Nigerian topflight.
A large number of Nigerian players, including the goalkeeper and the league’s top scorer, Stephen Odey will be on parade.
“I don’t think the presence of Super Eagles coach should put any player under pressure,” Michael told Goal.
“The most important thing is to play your game, don’t try to impress and focus on helping your team. It’s good the national coach is going around seeing league matches himself, that’s encouraging.
On the chances the Desert Warriors stand against the Lagos side, Michael said: “As for the match against MFM, we’ve and seen so much about them but we won’t be overwhelmed, we shall go into this match with that motive to win.
“A win will be very good but a point won’t be bad either. That’s our focus ahead of the match,” he concluded.
