Experienced striker Obinna Eleje has predicted new comers to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Katsina United will cause surprises this season even though they are regarded as underdogs.
Eleje is one of the most experienced players in the youthful Katsina United team as he has featured for several NPFL clubs including Warri Wolves, Enyimba and Nasarawa United.
He also played briefly in Switzerland.
“I am happy that we are regarded as underdogs, but I believe with the quality and commitment of the players here we will surprise a lot of people,” Eleje declared.
“We are a complete team and all the players are up and doing.
“This is a brand-new team, filled with young and ambitious players.
“Also, the atmosphere in the club is great. The players and coaches are warm. It’s a big family.
“I hope to bring my experience to help my new team spring surprises in the NPFL this season. We will pull surprises.”
Katsina United, fondly nicknamed ‘Changi Boys’ by their fans, will welcome Gombe United on Sunday in their first NPFL game after a 15-year absence in the Nigeria top flight.
