Mohammed Anas says his target is to win his second league title with Niger United as they begin their build-up to the 2019 Prudent Energy Handball League in Abuja.
Anas told www.aclsports.com that this year’s handball league will be tough since other teams have been recruiting players.
The winger said, “Winning the league will be a very difficult task for us (Niger United) because all the teams are eyeing the title. As you can see most of the clubs are busy buying players to ensure they meet up to our standard.
“The preparation for league is something that we have been doing. Niger United is the home of champions and we need to retain our position in the next coming league. So, we are training very hard to make it happen”.
The former U18 player revealed that he has been working personally on himself outside normal training to become an outstanding player.
He said, “I have been training very hard on my own, going for road work and also given myself rigorous training. The reason why I am hard on myself is because I want to play more than I did last season and overrun other teams who plans stopping me
Anas told www.aclsports.com that making the U21 and senior handball teams is an indication that he is improving.
He said, “Making the U21 team to the IHF Challenge Trophy in Kosovo and the senior national team to the 2019 All African Games qualifiers in Burkina Faso is something I am proud of. I want to also thank God for giving me the opportunity to play handball without injuries”.
