The Chairman of Enyimba Int’l FC, Chief Felix Anyansi-Agwu has dispelled fears that their opponents in this weekend’s CAF Confederations Cup group stage playoff, T.S. Galaxy FC are ‘giant killers’, AOIFootball.com reports.
In an exclusive interview with AOIFootball.com, the Chairman of the back to back CAF Champions League winners, stated that despite the South African side’s excellent run, there is still a limit to what they can achieve, hence not every club can be beaten by them.
“I understand that T.S. Galaxy FC are a young, ambitious and futuristic team, and they’ve done well with their impressive run of form so far,” said Anyansi-Agwu, who is arguably the longest serving top flight football club administrator in the country.
“They have made good impact, but the fact that they are tagged ‘giant killers’ does not mean it is every giant they can kill,” he added.
“They have achieved a lot in a very short space of time, but there is also limitation in everything, including progress, and Enyimba will ensure that they don’t have any more giants to kill,” Anyansi-Agwu said.
It would be recalled that T.S. Galaxy FC defeated South African giants, Kaizer Chiefs FC in last season’s Nedbank Cup final, and they went on a very impressive run in the CAF Confederations Cup before now, and Anyansi-Agwu posits that there are no small teams in the game of football at this level, albeit the South Africans should not be a major threat to the Elephants.
“We won’t underrate them in any way because having won the previous matches in the preliminary stage, it shows that they have a statement to make.
“Enyimba Int’l have a reputation to protect, that’s why we will face the game with all commitment,” he added.
He also sighted lack of domestic activities as one of the factors that may be of concern to his side, but maintained that the boys are focused, having being in camp for some time and perfecting their strategies.
“The only issue of concern would have been lack of competitive games, but that has been tackled and the team is completely focused.
“We’ve moved the team into closed camping for some days now and the technical crew have been working on the team to perfect our strategies,” Anyansi-Agwu concluded.
