A Nigerian pentecostal clergyman based in Swaziland (now eSwatini), Pastor Victor Ukozor Macdonald has joined in celebrating the qualification of Remo Stars FC for the CAF Champions League.
The Ikenne-based private owned club pulled off the feat by emerging second at the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Super-6 at Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Onikan, Lagos.
Macdonald, a former footballers’ agent, who is now the general-overseer of God’s Glory Ministries (GGM) in eSwatini, said he was impressed with what he saw of Remo Stars in their last match against Bendel Insurance of Benin City.
The football enthusiast, who groomed former Supee Eagles’ defender, Paul Obiefule, added that he was equally happy with the opportunity of watching the Nigerian league live once again, after an absence of 13 years.
He praised the League Management Company (LMC) for the smooth organisation and quality of refereeing, while also hailing all the competing clubs for their improved standard of play.
He concluded with sweet words for Remo Stars’ owner, Kunle Soname for marshalling a wonderful squad, and predicted that the club will do more wonders in years to come.
Macdonald posited: “I was impressed by Remo Stars. They can be the Real Madrid or Man City of Nigeria. I was also impressed seeing their fans wear the team’s replica jerseys.
“I’ve not met their chairman, but I saw some of the great things I heard that he is doing. I believe, all things being equal, that club can be the best in Nigeria within five years “
