Reflecting on the overall performance of the team in the Naija Super 8 tournament, Onoja remained optimistic, considering the transitional phase the team is currently undergoing in terms of players.

I will say the team didn’t do badly, considering the fact that we are experiencing a transition period. We still need time to gel as a unit,” Onoja replied.

When asked about the team’s chances of reclaiming the NPL trophy from Enyimba, Onoja expressed confidence in their improvement.

Yea, of course, the team will do better. This is the preparation time, where we go back to the drawing board and analyze our performance. There is always room for improvement,” he affirmed.

Of course, it’s a wake-up call. As I mentioned earlier, it’s the preparation time, and there’s always room for improvement. We need to learn from our mistakes and work harder to achieve our goals,” the midfielder emphasised.

When asked about his plans for the upcoming season and what fans can expect from him, Onoja preferred not to delve into his future with the club at the moment, keeping fans in suspense.

I will rather not talk about my future with the club for now,” Onoja replied with a thoughtful expression.
