“I’m happy I’m here again, so that I can contribute to the team success. It feels good to be back. There is nothing much to say. I just hope we all work together to ensure that we win the remaining games.”
Uche, who sauntered into the Bolton White hotel arena, flanked by Coach Stephen Keshi, volunteered that all is now settled between him the coach, adding that his main focus now was how to help the team out of its present predicament.
“Everything is okay now. We have to be together and work together for the team because the interest of our nation is what is very important. “I’m happy to be back to do my work. I’m a professional, this is what I do. We have to work hard to win the remaining games. This is a team game; we have to work as a team. I will do my best, likewise my colleagues; we just have to work as a team.”
He dismissed being under any pressure because the team is walking on a tight rope, even as he promised to give something to cheer to football fans who stood by him during his trying time
