“I have always done what is expected of me to ensure that the team achieves success at the end of every game, so I’ve never had cause to worry over goals-scoring because I know the goals would come eventually,” he stated.
The former Osun United goal poacher also insisted that the coach Kennedy Boboye- led technical crew has not cast aspersions on his style of play and contribution to the team’s success, hence, his resolve not to panic over his early goals drought.
“The handlers of the team have not yet criticised or queried my effort and contribution in all our matches so far, since the league started.
“They have also reposed confidence in me by giving me the opportunity to start every game, so I didn’t have any reason to play under pressure,” he said.
The energetic forward maitained that the team’s collective success appeals more to him than personal glory, which is why he is bent on ensuring they succeed, above his personal achievements.
“The overall success of the club is more important to me than personal achievement, that is why I’m focused on the team’s success over personal glory,” Omoyele concluded.
