Super Eagles’ and Bursaspor of Turkey midfielder, Mikel Ndubisi Agu believes the sack of Head Coach Paul Le Guen on Tuesday will not affect the team as they still have their sights set on finishing on the top half of the table.
Le Guen was sacked following last weekend’s loss to Kasimpasa at home, a result that leaves Bursaspor 13th on the table with just 5 points off the relegation zone.
Agu, who spoke to AOIFootball.com exclusively from his base, however, posited that he and his teammates must now begin to look beyond their former coach.
“It’s unfortunate the situation of our former coach, but you know that is football; things like this will always happen but I’m sure we can turn things around with our remaining league games,” Agu said.
Agu, who has been arguably the team’s best player this season despite their struggles as he ranks high for interceptions made, tackles won, ground duels covered and aerial duels won amongst his other colleagues, added that a top 10 finish will now be their priority.
“At the beginning of the season we wanted to get a European ticket, but unfortunately we fell short so now we just have to focus on having a good finish and hopefully make the top 10,” He concluded.
Bursaspor currently sits 13th with 33 points and have just won twice in their last 13 games.
