CAF CC: We Will Fancy Our Chances Against Pyramids – Fatai Osho
By Sampson Adedeji
Head coach of Enyimba International, Nigeria’s sole representative in the CAF Confederations Cup, Fatai Osho said his club remain focused on its target despite being drawn against a tough opposition, BSNSports.com.ng reports.
The People’s Elephants were drawn against last year’s finalist FC Pyramids of Egypt on Friday which many football fans think will be a tough match for Enyimba but the team’s manager believes his side will fancy their chances to reach the next stage.
While speaking to the club media, Osho hailed the performance of the Egyptian side but maintained that their target must be reached.
“As at the time we qualified we knew the team could only be drawn against Pyramids, Coton Sport and Sfaxien.
“We got Pyramids, finalists in the last edition, they are no pushovers in African football, they have what it takes to compete very well. But we have our target too and no matter the opposition we come up against, we want to fancy our chances to qualify.
“A lot of commendation has to go to the players, I spoke to them this (Saturday) morning that the journey has just started. We are in the quarter-finals and Enyimba is a household name in Africa,” he said.
