Nigeria Premier League debutants Remo Stars got a proper welcome to the elite division, in season opener in Shagamu – losing 1-2 to visiting Plateau United.

Remo Stars Technical Adviser Nduka Ugbade feels the team performed well, considering the fact that they just joined the big boys in the #NPFL, coming from the Nigeria National League (2nd division).


“We lost the match yes, but I wouldn’t say I am disappointed. I would rather say that it was a good outing because they players played very well and for a team of young players coming from a lower division into the elite division such shortfalls are to be expected,” he said

The former Nigeria international is optimistic that the team will improve in upcoming matches, saying it’s way too early to judge them, after only one match in the big league.

“It is too early to begin to talk about beefing up by way of addition of players because we have a squad that is ready to make impact in the league, and it will not be proper to begin to judge after just a match,” he added .

“We are ready to work hard and make impact in the league. We wouldn’t want our story to be that we made it into the premier league and went back immediately, rather we would want to play good enough to remain in the premier league,” he enthused.
