Akwa United star Evans Iyebi has hailed the winning mentality of his teammate Samson Gbadebo after 3-2 win against Dakkada Football Club in Uyo on Sunday.
Gbadebo was named as matchday captain following the absence of team captain, Ubong Friday, and had a good game while playing alongside Charles Okafor in the absence of Denis Nya.
Evans who was also involved in the game, told Lodgexpress of Gbadebo:
“Sam is a player who always wants to win everything. With that I mean he wants to clinch every point, every tackle he’s involved, every trophy he challenges, he wants to win it all – everything, from FIFA games to every match he features in.
“He is a top top lad and a determined centerback who wants to win every game and beat every record there is. He has an incredible winner’s mentality and never wants to lose even in training.”
The win on Sunday fired the Promise Keepers to fifth position on the table and they will be on the road this weekend to take on league leaders, Plateau United in Jos.
