Bendel Insurance Will Get Better Next Season — Odigie

Bendel Insurance FC of Benin City, the winners of the Nigeria Federation Cup, have vowed to regroup and perform exceptionally well in both domestic and continental competitions in the coming season. The team clinched the 2023 NFF Federation Cup title with a 1-0 victory over Enugu Rangers at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba. This triumph has earned them the right to represent Nigeria in the CAF Confederation Cup next season.

Reflecting on their success, Bendel Insurance head coach Monday Odigie acknowledged the challenges they faced throughout the season. Despite going unbeaten in the abridged league, the team experienced fatigue which ultimately led to their loss in the Super Six tournament. However, Odigie emphasized that winning the Federation Cup was a testament to their determination and resilience.

“It has been an incredibly tough season for us, but we are grateful to God that our hard work has paid off with the Federation Cup victory. Although we lost our momentum in the Super Six, we were able to fight with all our strength and emerge as champions. Our players were fatigued, and our squad depth was limited. This season has taught us valuable lessons, and I believe we will only improve in the upcoming season,” Odigie explained.
