Fatai Osho is reveling in the opportunity to work with his players again after the Covid-19 pandemic caused a seven-month hiatus on football activities across Nigeria.
Football clubs are allowed to return to training and leagues permitted to begin after the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on Thursday lifted the restriction on all contact sports in the country.
Osho is expected to lead Enyimba in the CAF Champions League which is expected to begin in late November, and although no date has been announced for the commencement of the Nigeria Professional Football League, the gaffer can’t wait for games to begin to come thick and fast.
“The lockdown made me realise how much I love this job,’ the coach began.
“I have always been passionate about football and training players, but I didn’t know I was this attached. I didn’t know I would miss it that much.
“Staying without the game for so long felt like a part of me was missing, but now I feel alive again. When I wake up every morning I set off to the training ground and meet with my players and crew. That’s the life I love to live, not staying in lockdown.”
