It is no longer news that the 2019-2020 Nigeria Women Premier League (NWPL) will kick off on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, at various centres.
Abia Angels defender and Cameroon youngster, Reine Bakendj said she and her club are putting all the hardwork to ensure a successful season for the club.
“We are working hard to be ready for league resumption on March 18. I’m doing my best to be the best again. We want to do better than our last season performance.”
Abia Angels were unable to make it to Super 4 last season, Reine Bakendj is of the view that the club can make it to Super 4 next season with more games to play.
“Last srason was last season. For this season, I trust we will do better and the championship is long. Everything is possible. Just wait and see.” She said.
Reine Bakendj took us through her football career from playing in Cameroon before moving to Nigeria as well as her education and parental support.
“I started my career in Fenasco whith my school in Bafia: Lycée classique et Moderne. I won my first medal with my school, at that moment, Social of Mbam invited me to their team.
My parents support my football career because it is what I love and they always want me to do what makes me happy. When I started playing football, I combined it with school but now I am just playing football without going to school. Its my choice.”
Bakendj has featured for Cameroon Under 17 and Under 20 women side and hope for more call up to the national team as well as playing for a good European club in future.
“I want to be the best in my post and have a place in a good team in europe, play in our national team.” She concluded.
