Enyimba of Aba’s chief coach Usman Abd’Allah says his team will not underrate their next CAF Confederation Cup opponents, TS Galaxy.
The People’s Elephants will take on the South Africans second division side who are campaigning in this year’s CAF Confederations Cup by the virtue of winning domestic cup last season.
While the Rockets are appearing on the continent for the first time in their history, Nigeria Champions Enyimba are one of the most successful teams on the continent, winning two Champions league and a Super Cup title , but Abd’Allah insists past achievements will count for nothing when both teams step out on the pitch to do battle for Group stage tickets.
“I don’t think it really matters if they [TS Galaxy] are in the second division because they are Cup winners,” Abd’Allah told the media .
“So, they must have beaten big teams to become the Cup winners and I’m not going to take anything for granted.
“We are not taking anything for granted, we are going to treat any team as one of the best teams.”
Abdallah’s side reached the semi-final of the CAF Confederations Cup two seasons ago and the experience coach has assured one that his team will “do everything possible to win this year’s edition, inorder to complete the their circle of winning all CAF competitions.
“We are going to take this match as important as any other match that we’ve played. The most important thing is to qualify for the group stage,” Abd’Allah continued.
“Now the target is for the group stage so we are going to work and do everything possible to see that we qualify for the group stage.
“This is the last chance we’ll get and we are not going to let it slip away from our hands now. I think the team will be ready for that match.”
Enyimba will welcome TS Galaxy to Aba for the first leg on the of October 27 before the traveling to South Africa a week later for the reversed fixture.
