Chief Coach of the team, Mr. Akeem Busari made this known while featuring on “Saturday Football Live Show” on Poly Ilaro 92.10 FM today.
In a telephone conversation with the presenter, Mobolaji Abati, Coach Busari stated that the club is already in good shape and ready to prepare well for the season after the 2019/2020 season was called off by the Nigeria Football Federation.
According to him, ” we were in the second place on the table with some matches remaining before the league was cancelled due to covid-19 pandemic, we were pushing forward to play in the elite division but it happened and the league was called off”.
He however thanked the state government,, Prince Dapo Abiodun for his selfless support to the team, promising that the team would do the needful to return back to the premier league where they belong.
Gateway United FC has been the team of Ogun state that once played in Nigeria’s elite division but has been struggling of late to return to the apex league with their recent narrow miss on the last day of the season.
