Saka believes in Yusuf

Enyimba attacking midfielder, Ayo Saka said he expects a cordial working relationship with the new manager, Salisu Yusuf.

Saka spent a greater part of last season on the bench due to recurring knee injury but is 100% fit for the coming season.

The Nigerian playmaker said he worked harmoniously with the former Kano Pillars' coach while with the Flying Eagles and believe this time will be far better.

"Coach Salisu Yusuf is not new to me, he was my coach at the Under20 national team way back in 2007. And once I'm doing well surely we'll be the best of friends," he said to supersport.com.

The former Ocean Boys' player said he is battle ready to make up for his less playing time in the out gone 2011/2012 league season.

"People are expecting more from me this season but I assure that I'll give more than I'm being expected to give.

"I want to make up for last season. I spent a lot of time on the bench due to the knee injury. I'm whole and hearty, it's my desire to make it up to my fans," he said.

Saka is confident the People's Elephant will emerge champions of the 2012/2013 season.

"Enyimba won't miss the league title. We have the best legs that will make the job easy," he said.
