Enugu Rangers coach Imama Amapakabo eyes positive result in Egypt
Enugu Rangers coach, Imama Amapakabo hopes his team will put their poor domestic form behind them when they play Zamalek in the CAF Champions League.
The 2016 Nigeria Premier League winners lost their last match to Rivers United. Rivers united were knocked out of Africa by Al Masry.
Amapakabo said, “our last game in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) against Rivers United is a prelude to what will happen this weekend against Zamalek. It is now up to me as a coach to see what the deficiencies of my team are.”
He expects his team to be confident over possibility of a good result against Zamalek. “We go to Egypt with confidence that we can get a positive result as we strive to do Nigeria proud in this prestigious competition,”
Imama Amapakabo also took time to speak about Rangers’ struggles in the Nigerian league. “I virtually have the same set of players I had last season that won the league.
I think it has to do with self-belief. I will say it is my problem to make the team play to create chances but I will also say it is the problem of the players, technically, to convert the chances that they create,”
Enugu Rangers are currently ranked 17th in the league, after 10 matches played.
