Bayelsa ready for Sewe FC, says club chair­man

Daily Trust - - SPORT - By Mike Oboh

Bayelsa United FC is ad­e­quately pre­pared to do the na­tion proud by de­feat­ing their next op­po­nents - Sewe Sport­ing FC to ad­vance to the next stage of the CAF Con­fed­er­a­tion Cup com­pe­ti­tion.

The Club chair­man, Mr. Odogu Akpofini, who stated this in a chat with Daily Trust in Abuja, said though they do not have much in­for­ma­tion about their next op­po­nents, they are fo­cused and ad­e­quately com­mit­ted to over­run their foes this weekend in the first leg en­counter in San-Pe­dro.

“In terms of com­mit­ment the team is ready to do Nigeria proud. We are tak­ing ev­ery game as it comes. We have lit­tle clue about our Ivo­rian op­po­nent, Sewe Sport­ing FC of Cote d’Ivoire but I am con­fi­dent that we will carry the day. We are into the com­pe­ti­tion not only to make im­pact, but our tar­get is the tro­phy,” he said.

Akpofini, who dis­missed ru­mours of plans to en­gage a new tech­ni­cal ad­viser for the club, com­mended the cur­rent tech­ni­cal crew for a job well done so far in both the league and the con­ti­nen­tal show­piece.

Akpofini, who de­scribed the exit of their for­mer coach Ladan Bosso as shock­ing and ill-timed, said he is happy that the vac­uum cre­ated with his de­par­ture has been taken care of with the re­sults his for­mer as­sis­tants are post­ing in the club.
