Winning the MVP award has not changed anything, says Cliquesports’ Ayinde

The youngster claims he would give up his most valuable player award for his team to progress to the next round of the 2017 Lagos FA Cup tourney if he had the chance

Cliquesports’ Ayinde Abiodun says winning the most valuable player in his side’s 1-0 defeat to Spartans FC on Sunday at the Agege Stadium would push him to work harder and become a better player in the future.

Ashade Dauda scored the only goal that gave the pro-league side the victory over the academy in the round of 32 of the ongoing 2017 Lagos State FA Cup, and the youngster added that he will not be distracted by the awards, but insisted that it will help him become a better player.

He also stated that he would have preferred helping his team advance to the next stage rather than winning the individual award in the match.

“Winning the MVP award for this game has not changed anything from whom I used to be, rather, it will make me work pretty much harder, and I will keep on improving,” Ayinde told Goal.

“Winning the award is very tempting, for some, it is an avenue to feel they have arrived but for me, it is an avenue to become a better player than I used to be.

“I would have preferred the team to win rather than me winning the MVP, but overall, we played together and we gave our best in the game.
