Uweru explains return to Crown



Goalkeeper Michael Uweru said he joined NNL side, Crown FC for the 2012/2013 league season to revive his dwindling career.

Uweru left the Ogbomosho-based side to Kwara United after their demotion to the lower division at the end of 2010/2011 season but financial disagreement between both sides over his transfer kept him on the bench for the whole of 2011/2012 league season.

Uweru said he considered it best to return to his base than continuing to idle away searching for elusive club.

“I decided to return to Crown to revive my career instead of idling away and going around without cementing a shirt in any club.

“Crown embraced me with both hands and it looks like they’ve been praying for my return all this while I was seeking a permanent place at Kwara United.

“It’s a big challenge and I’ve to fight hard to reclaim my erstwhile number one spot in the team.

“I know somebody is occupying the position at the moment, the way around it will be purely through healthy competition and at the end of the day the team will be the biggest gainer.

“More so my reunite with Crown will make it easy for me to achieve the much needed breakthrough in future.

“The target is return to the Premier League, at least, the quality of players I met on ground gave me hope the challenge won’t be tough,” he said to supersport.com.

Crown, though demoted at the end of 2011/2012 season to the Nationwide League, will step into the shoes of FC Ebeide in the NNL for the coming 2012/2013 league season.
