Manu: F/Eagles won’t be complacent

Despite winning all their games so far at the ongoing Super 6 tournament and subsequently topping the log, which has put them in firm position to win the mini-tournament, Flying Eagles coach, Manu Garba has ruled out any form of complacency in his team.
The Nigerian U-20’s are using the tournament to prepare for the 2015 Africa Youth Championship in Senegal, and have beaten more experienced teams from the Nigerian league like champions, Kano Pillars, former champions, Enyimba, and Warri Wolves.
But Manu, however, says the wins notwithstanding, his team will not be getting complacent and will not get carried away now, or when the African Youth Championship starts.
“We are not a team that gets complacent, the players forget a victory right in the dressing room and they focus on the next match,” Manu told sl10.ng.
“We cannot rule out fatigue because it’s natural but I can tell you that these boys (players) are very competitive even in training and they train and play like it’s a competitive fixture.
“So we are not a team that is complacent because the players realize there’s always someone else to take their positions once they start getting relaxed.
“I keep saying that we do not have an automatic shirt for any player in our team and that extends to the captain because if he’s not doing well in training, he will not be featured on game day,” Manu reckoned.
The flying Eagles now have 9 points from three games in the Super 6, and will play Dolphins on Friday, and then the Dream Team VI on Sunday, in what should be the grand finale.
