Plateau United to register 50 players for 2017/2018 season

Pius Henwan, the General Manager, Plateau United FC of Jos, on Saturday said the club will register 50 players for the 2017/2018 football season.
Henwan said this was to strengthen the team for its CAF Champions League, Nigeria Professional Football League and the Aiteo Cup engagements next season.
He said already some new players have been recruited to replace the 12 players released last season and to fortify the team before the commencement of the 2017/2018 NPFL, which kicks-off in January.
The GM announced that the team would participate in a pre-season tournament in Kano next week to allow the technical crew evaluate the players.
Henwan said: “Efforts are on for the team to embark on a close camping outside the country where the team is expected to map out plans for their continental campaign.
“During the camping, the team will play some quality friendly matches with some foreign clubs.”
Henwan explained that the state government would ensure a befitting reception for the team for doing the state proud by winning the NPFL title.
