Egwim targets silverware



Dolphins striker, Ifeanyi Egwim claims a trophy and qualification for Africa is what the club should be looking for next season.

After escaping relegation on the last day to finish last term in 11th place in the premier league, Egwim told supersport.com that they need to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.

"The main reason I joined Dolphins was because of their enviable record in Nigerian football, so we weren't happy with the way things turned out last season," he said.

"There are ups and downs in football, so we have put the experience behind us but we must strategise to get the club back to the top in the upcoming season.

"We should be able to contest strongly for both the league and Federation Cup, as they remain our only routes to a place on the continent.

"I must point out however, that our early elimination in the Federation Cup by Plateau United was due to a very poor playing surface, and I would urge the authorities to ensure the pitches are up to standard next time.

"We've been preparing well to ensure we do better and would soon go into closed camping," he added.

The former Enugu Rangers front runner also expressed his desire to improve on his own performance.

Egwim scored seven times in the premier league and also accounted for three goals in the Champions League before the Port Harcourt side bowed out to Cotonsport, but reckons he would improve on this tally.

"I was new at Dolphins and it took a little time to understand the runs and passes of my teammates," he explained.

"This would be my second year at the club and we now have a telepathic understanding so I'm promising more goals next season."
