FC Cincinnati star pledges ₦1.1m to Lobi Stars for CAFCL win

Former MLS Star Fanendo Adi will have to redeem a ₦1.1million pledge to Lobi Stars for the victory over Gor Mahia in the first round second leg match of the CAF Champions League qualifiers on Saturday.

Adi, who plays for FC Cincinnati in the United Soccer League Championship, reportedly promised the NPFL winners ₦500,000 for every goal scored and ₦1million for a win against the Kenyan team.

 


Fortunately, Lobi Stars sealed a spot in the group stage of the competition with a comfortable 2-0 win courtesy a brace by Sikiru Alimi at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium on Saturday.

 

They thus advanced on a 3-3 aggregate win, following the 3-1 first-leg result in Nairobi.

 

The club’s official twitter handled quoted the former Portland Timbers forward:

Benue State indegene & @fccincinnati star, @fanendo, promised players of @LobiStars N500,000 per goal and N1,000,000 for victory during the interval. The players delivered. “Since I am home as @MLS is on break, I came to support my State team, #WeAreLobi. I am happy #Lobi won”.
