|Happy Hekari team after defeating Lautoka F.C.|
Natto imported Solomon Island stars Alick Maemae, Gideon Omokirio, Stanley Waita and Henry Faarodo to add more strength to his side. Faarodo nailed the decisive goal against Lautoka which has propelled the side to the top of the table.
"I had to blend experience with the PNG players and that is the reason we brought in the likes of Alick Maemae and Stanley Waita. It was about winning for us in Lautoka," Natto said.
"We have two Fijians and we would like to think that we can bring in Vanuatu players as well. I am an investor and I like to promote flair in football.
I want a blend of players from the Pacific if we are to beat New Zealand in the final."Hekari is likely to face defending O-League champions Auckland City in the final if they go past Marist.
Natto said to beat New Zealand they would need the best players. He said he could recruit two more players before playing in the final to increase their chances of playing in the Club World Cup.
"We know we will face New Zealand and who knows I can bring in two more players before the final," he said.
Natto is eyeing the US$1 million which would be handed to the team that makes the Club World Cup with the O-League winner getting automatic entry.
Hekari leaves for Port Moresby today after spoiling Lautoka's plans of extending its lead in Group B.The PNG champions will face Marist on March 28 and Lautoka will meet Tafea in Port Villa on the same day.
