Nasarawa United's Kabiru Dogo is unmoved with Lordson Ichull's departure from the club, saying the team thrives on collective efforts and not individual ability.
The 23-year-old midfielder joined former Nigeria Professional Football League champions, Enyimba FC on a two-year deal in April. And the Solid Miners' handler claims the midfielder will not be missed at the Lafia Township Stadium when the second stanza of the league resumes in May.
"As far as I’m concerned, Nasarawa United are a team that thrives on collective effort and not on individual skill," Dogo told Goal.
"Ichull has given his best to the team in the last one and half years, he was a key member of our team, but at the same time, we cannot deny him his progress, so far he has a good offer, I have to allow him continue their life.
"But at the same time, the team was not built around Ichull, we have a group of 30 good players, and we can call anyone of them to play, and I must confess that we will miss him as a person, but in the team, we will not miss him."
He further said that his side's slim victory over Rivers United will boost his side's confidence ahead of the second half of the season, adding that his aim is to seal a place on the continent nex tseason.
"The victory was a very good result for us; at least beating a continental team is a good motivation for us.,''he continued,
"Last season we wanted to return to the continent but we could not, so this season we have decided to target a trophy – either the league title or the Federation Cup. If we can get either of these titles, automatically we will return to the continent which is our main target."
