Sunshine Stars forward Ebonam Nwogbaga has heaped praise on his boss Deji Ayeni following their come-back victory over Dakkada on Sunday.
Ebonam was named in the starting lineup for Sunshine Stars before coming off in the second half.
He told Lodgexpress during his post-game interview: “I really admire the boss’ brain. Coach Ayeni is one of the best coaches I’ve had.
“He takes his time to instruct you how to play, tactically and technically. Then, there’s his psychological coaching, which is very demanding. He asks you to give everything once you’re called to represent.
“He often tells us to enjoy every moment on the pitch but do that by giving everything. This is a gaffer’s mentality needed to make champions and win trophies.”
