“When I joined (before the Jan. 21 game against Mohun Bagan), the team was not in good shape. I too needed time. The pressure was getting to be too much…I was waiting for a day like today,” said Omagbemi.
“After our 2-2 draw here, I had told my mates this team (Minerva) is finished. We are definitely in with a chance,” said Omagbemi.
