Former First Bank Football Club of Lagos forward, Alimi Adewale Sikiru relishes his Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Super 4 experience with Warri Wolves.

The Osun born striker added that Warri Wolves is a great team with talented players, he then gave glory to God and kudos to his team mates and anticipated that Wolves would be a team to beat this season.
“Wolves is a great team with lots of talented players, I give glory to God and kudos to my team mates, ever since I joined the group they have made me feel at home am so happy because that has really helped me a lot.
