The Chairman, Enyimba Football Club of Aba, Kanu Nwankwo has said that the club under him had not started badly.
Nwankwo stated this at the Enyimba Stadium in Aba on Sunday while speaking to newsmen after the club played a goalless draw with Al Ahli SCSC of Benghazi, Libya.
Kanu said although his team could not score, they played well but would need to return to the drawing board to make the Aba-based team achieve the expected results.
“We wanted to be at the group stage and do what we had to do but all of us know that one plus one is two but it is not so in football.
“We could not score a goal to win today, but sometimes it happens and it happens to the best team and the best players and that is football,” he said.
In order to strengthen the team and guarantee that the brilliance was maintained, Kanu pledged to bring in additional players.
He emphasised that it might have been a horrible start if the squad had performed poorly and lost as well, underlining that even the best teams lose occasionally.
The Enyimba FC Chairman thanked Enyimba’s fans for coming out in numbers to cheer the team up and urged them to continue supporting the team because Enyimba’s tomorrow would be brighter.
Joseph Atule, one of Enyimba’s star players said the result of the match made the day a bad one for them.
He, however, promised on behalf of his teammates to work harder to bring laurels to the Aba side through the upcoming national league competitions.
