By Sampson Adedeji
The coach of Nigeria Professional League champion, Enyimba International, Usman Abdallah has stated that picking quarter final ticket of the CAF Confederation Cup remains the club’s top priority, BSNSports.com.ng can report .
BSN Sports reports that the People Elephant was handed a tough group in the CAF Confederation Cup draws conducted on Tuesday and Abdallah believed they have what it takes to secure their passage to the quarter final stage.
“At this stage, we are waiting for anybody and you know that any team that has gotten to the stage must have worked so well to be there. So, we are going to prepare very well for all the matches.
“Now the goal is for us to get to the quarter-finals by whatever means whether we top the group or come second is immaterial; we just have to do our best and get to the quarter-finals first before we can set another goal for ourselves, he stated.
No Nigerian club has won the CAF Confederation Cup since it was launched in 2004 and only the defunct Dolphins FC of Port Harcourt had gone all the way to the final but they lost 3-1 on aggregate to Moroccan side Association Sportive des Forces Armées Royales in the 2005 final
