VFC's Player of The Month (May) Daniel Kolawole says he strongly believes the Lions' season is back on track.
The striker posted four goals and gave one assist to win the valuable award, and told vandrezzerfc.com after the votes were announced that he feels very elated:
"I thank God for this award and dedicate it to the fans, management and the team who have all withstood the storm that hit us recently. We struggled for a while but now I absolutely believe we are back on track. "
"We were unlucky to end up on the losing sides in the two games before the win against Go Round FC which was our turning point, before enduring and surmounting the Giant Brillars hurdle. Victory gives confidence and we are approaching the next game with full confidence of a positive result" he added.
'The Bull' as he's nicknamed, is currently the team's top scorer with five goals, with one of his goals also earning him the goal of the month award - the 31st minute strike against Giant Brillars last weekend. According to the VFC no 9, there are more goals left in his boots this season:
"It's a wonderful feeling being top scorer and also winning goal of the month, I'm really in cloud 9 right now! All kudos to Saviour Isaac for setting me up with a lovely pass to score that goal. I also appreciate my other teammates who have given me assists to score all my five goals this season."
"Strikers live on goals, goals help the team win matches. I hope to work harder towards scoring more goals and help the team achieve more positive results in our remaining matches. At the end of the day, the aim is winning, and it takes team effort to make it happen."
Looking at his VFC career, the Lions' number 9 says he's grateful to Coach Tony Bolus and the rest of the technical crew for the continuous belief in him:
"At a period I was getting criticisms over the goal drought I witnessed for most of the first half of the season, but the coaches still believed in me and I thank them for that."
"I love every minute playing for this football club. VFC is an excellent platform for young players to be exposed to the football world and I don't take that opportunity for granted, so I'll keep doing my best to improve and impress the coaches and the fans" he concluded.
Following the cancellation of the mid-week game between VFC and Rovers, Kolawole and his teammates now prepare for the trip to Ado Ekiti to play Matchday 18 opponents Ekiti United, on Sunday June 6, at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium. First leg at the Soccer Temple in March ended 1-0 in favour of the Lions.
