Former Benue Buffalos player, Obinna Anih has rated Nigeria coaches high due to their ditching of instructions on and off the court.
Anih told www.aclsports.com that he left Gabon for Morocco due to lack of competitive matches in the Central Africa league.
The former senior national team player revealed his intention of returning to Nigeria if the current league improves drastically.
He said, “I started playing handball in Nigeria with Benue Buffalos before leaving in 2015. It was not difficult for me to acclimatise at my club sides. Handball in North Africa is spectacular; I love the way they play and I want to see Nigeria play ahead of them.
“This is my second season in Kawkab Athletic Club Marrakech of Morocco. I previously played professional handball in Gabon with Phoenix Handball Team. The reason why I left Gabon for Morocco was because the league was not competitive”.
He added, “Handball in Morocco is amazing but I am looking forward to return to Nigeria because the coaches in Nigeria manage players properly. In morocco, you have to play according to the fans and not to the coaches. I know if the league grows, I might come back to continue playing club side handball”.
He said the President of Handball Federation of Nigeria, Samuel Ocheho extended invitations to players plying their trade outside the country during the build up to the last Nation’s Cup.
“My suggestion to this current board is to keep the good work going. When Samuel Ocheho came on board, we witness so many changes and things have been progressing. It has been a long time they called professionals to come represent Nigeria at the Africa Nation’s Cup and we were opportune to wear the colors of Nigeria”, Anih said.
