“We are currently on holiday and will resume on January 2, 2017. We are building a new squad and hopefully the team should be ready for the challenge ahead,” Ogunbote told Goal.

“Yes, we had a couple of players who left Enyimba FC but sincerely the club is bigger than any player but the focus is on building a team that will compete and lift trophies.

“You know that Enyimba FC didn’t lift a trophy last season and that may cause some obvious pressure considering that Enyimba FC is the biggest brand in club football in Nigeria.

“I won’t let such pressure influence my decision or style and I won’t allow it get to the players but the major target is to get back to where the club belongs.”
