Kabiru Isa: Kada BSC coach hopes to win NBSL title on home soil

The head coach of 2022 Nigeria Beach Soccer League champions, Kada BSC’s Kabiru Isa is looking ahead to the Super Four in Kaduna, the home ground of the team to win the title.

The ghost of losing the maiden league to Kebbi BSC in Kaduna still haunts the Kaduna-based side with determination to undo the past experiences.

With artilleries like consecutive top goal scorer in the league Dozie Frank, national team captain Victor Tale, and pacy Tanko Emmanuel, the team according to coach Isa hopes to stage a coup on the league title which Kebbi BSC has won two of the last three editions.

“We are really preparing very hard now for the Super Four. Our training is very intense and the boys are coping with the pressure. They are willing to give their best to make sure we pick this trophy this time around,” Isa told www.beachsoccer.ng

“The last time we hosted the Super Four here in Kaduna, we lost to Kebbi but this time around I don’t think it is going to be a jamboree to them. They want to win the trophy once again for the state as host.”

With pressure from the home crowd and supporters, the gaffer is exuding confidence that his team is not under any pressure to win the title on home soil.

“There is nothing like pressure this time around because, from the look of things, the boys are more determined than the last time we hosted the Super Four.” He continued. “I can’t see any sign of pressure on them. I believe with their current attitude now, they have shown that they are ready for the Super Four.”

Ahead of next month’s Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations (BSAFCON) qualifiers between Nigeria Beach Soccer national team and Mauritania, Isa sees the return of national team football as having a huge impact on the quality of the league.

“Bringing back the beach soccer national team is a very good and welcomed development. I must commend the Nigeria Beach Soccer League officials and the Technical department, especially the Coordinator, Mahmud Hadejia. He has done a very good job of putting pressure on bringing back the team is not easy.

“Bringing back the national team is a very good development for the league as a whole in Nigeria and it will have an impact on the Super Four as teams will come out very strong. Most of the players will want to play so they will be invited to the Super Sand Eagles. Bringing the team back will boost the performance of players in the league. They will use that determination to go into the camp and continue from where they stopped in the league. We are very happy for this.” He concluded.

Kebbi BSC won the 2021 NBSL in Kaduna before Kada BSC returned to Kebbi state to win the 2022 edition.

With the Kebbi Fishers reclaiming the title in 2023, the stage is set for another showdown in Kaduna as the top four teams jostle for the league title in July.
