Enyimba’s 4-1 victory over Paradou AC in the CAF Confederation Cup comes as a huge sigh of relief for the Nigerian champions in a topsy turvy season, that also cost Technical Adviser Usman Abd’Allah his job.
The win breathe life into the Enyimba’s bid to reach the next round of the competition and midfielder Austin Oladapo admits it was a perfect game for the team.
“The game was easy for us because our boys played to instruction of the Coach; from the first to the last minute and it played out well at the end,” he told brila.net.
“We’ll keeping working hard because we know a win will see us through to the next round.”
The game was Fatai Osho’s first as caretaker Coach after the Club parted ways with Abd’Allah.
There were concerns of unrest in the locker room and fears of a player revolt, all of which Oladapo disclaimed.
“The result was good on this occasion and it’s just part of the game; It really wasn’t because of the change in Management.
“Abd’Allah is a good Coach but it was unfortunate how results turned out eventually.
“But as far as winning against Paradou is concerned, Fatai (Osho) isn’t so different from Abd’Allah, but it was just a good day for us.”
