CAF Confederation Cup: Coach Eguma Promises Better Outing For Rivers United

The head coach of former NPFL champions Rivers United Stanley Eguma has responded to the Confederation Cup draw released by CAF on Tuesday.

Rivers United were drawn bye in the first preliminary round of the CAF Confederation Cup but will face the winner of the tie between Etoile Du Filante of Burkina Faso and Senegal’s Zingquor in the second round.

Eguma assured of a better outing from the Pride of Rivers in this season’s campaign and said they will not underrate their second-round opponents.

“The draw is out and we have respect for our opponents because considering the football being played in these countries Burkina Faso and Senegal.

We know Senegal is a strong power in African football recently, so we can not take them for granted.

I believe they are strong opposition, and that we are drawn bye in the first round is an advantage to us and we will not take it for granted.

We would work extra hard because those that played in the first round would have the advantage of tasting the competition.

“We are working very hard after the Super 8 tournament, we came back to regroup and correct some mistakes we noticed last season.

“When we lost out in the CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final, we lost some players but we have tried to get quality replacements, and I think by the time we work very well we will come out a stronger team.

I’m optimistic that we are going to do well and go beyond the quarter-final we achieved last season”, Eguma assured.
