Kolkata: A day after sacking veteran Syed
Nayeemuddin, Mohammedan Sporting on Tuesday roped in Tope Ayodeji
Fuja to coach the side.

The Nigerian, who coached Mumbai United last season, has
been handed a three-year-contract.

Fuja said it will be challenging to coach Mohammedan
Sporting and his target would be to qualify for the I-League.

"It`s a challenge. My target is to qualify for the
I-League. I am sure, we will achieve the target with a
collective effort.”

"I am yet to see the team. I want everybody to be
disciplined and dedicated. I will begin practice tomorrow. I
will not hesitate to strengthen the side," Fuja, who also
has a coaching experience in Nepal, said.

Fuja has done his coaching training in the USA and
played for the under-23 Nigerian team.
