Evans Ogenyi heap praises on Warri Wolves players despite loss to MFM in season opener


Evans Ogenyi, Coach of Warri Wolves has heaped praises on his players despite losing to home side MFM FC at the Agege Stadium in Lagos.

The Olukoya boys opened scoring thanks to goals from Adeyemi in the 8th minute before Muyiwa extended the lead to two goals.
Wolves on the other hand got a consolation goal from just four minutes after MFM extended their lead to two.

Speaking to LMC Media, Evans Ogenyi said his boys performed well in the second half, but blamed the loss on first-half poor display.

“It’s unfortunate we conceded in the first half but came out stronger in the second half. This is a marathon we will go back work on the weaknesses we have noticed in this game and hopefully come back stronger in the next match” said the manager on NPFL.ng.
