Plateau United Storm Searching For Right Combo — Coach Longmiap
By Sab Osuji
Nigeria Professional Football League title holders, Plateau United, are still searching the right combination coach Mauris Longmiap, has revealed.
“Yes, we’ve been applying squad rotation policy because we are still looking for the right combination of players”, Longmiap said after the CAF champions League contestants pulled off a 3-1 win against Ngwa Utd in their third match of the #GovIkpeazuCup2020# tournament in Aba on Tuesday.
“That’s why we have rotating our squad and of course, we want to give every player opportunity to express himself for us to see what he has.
“And this, I must say, has been working out well for us”.
Plateau United have scored four goals in the #GovIkpeazuCup2020# tournament, conceding just once.
But the gaffer reckons that they are not yet fully ready for the 2020/2021 domestic top flight.
He nonetheless expressed shrewd optimism that the Tin City are now in shape for the November 28 CAF champions League preliminary round first leg tie against Tanzanian giants, Silva FC.
“We are very, very ready for the continental. That’s why we came here.
“We factored our preparation for the continental into this tournament and I’m happy with what this (Gov Ikpeazu Preseason Tournament) has offered us in terms of competitiveness towards our preparation”, coach Longmiap said.
