Sunshine retain Itodo



Defensive midfielder, Cletus Itodo has said he is keeping his spot with NPL side, Sunshine Stars for the 2012/2013 league season.

Itodo had a brief stint with Dolphins early part of last season before he retraced his step to the Akure Gunners and fought hard in the side's futile effort at winning the league shield.

The Nigerian playmaker said his decision to stay put at the Akure-based side is informed by his belief in the new manager, Abimbola Samuel to win laurels for the side in the coming season.

"I've given Sunshine Stars my word to stay back for the 2012/2013 league season.

"I considered many things and options before arriving at the decision part of which is the coach at the helms of affair at the moment.

"He is a player's coach and working very hard to bring the players together, united and as one family. He is equally fighting to ensure whatever is left of our entitlements are paid.

"He gave me confidence that together we'll take the team to higher height in the coming season.

"I'm positive that if we submit wholly to him the journey and challenges of next season will be easy.

"Thus, I'm staying back to contribute my quota to the new dream of Sunshine Stars.

"We're keeping our target close to our chests waiting for the league to start but be rest assured that lots of goodies will be ours this coming season," he said to supersport.com.

Sunshine Stars exited at the semifinals of the Caf Champions League and will not be at the continent next year due to their unimpressive finish in the final log of the out gone 2011/2012 season.
