Rivers United vs. Enyimba
The club’s chairman has charged his team to be at their best when they face the Malians in Sunday’s clash

Enyimba chairman Felix Anyansi has commissioned his team to be at their best when they face Djoliba on Sunday.

The two-time African champions begin their quest to win the Caf Confederation Cup by hosting the Malians who eliminated MFM FC.

In the wake of their 0-0 draw against Akwa United, the seasoned football administrator wants Paul Aigbogun’s side to be fully prepared to make Nigerians proud.

"Every team is now looking up to you, because of your qualification for the group stage as the only Nigerian team. There is no excuse we can give,” Anyansi said while addressing the players.

"This is a major match. If we don't start well, with three points, we might not get where we want to be.

"Let us prepare in such a way that we won't let anyone down, so that they will be proud of you.

"Let us redeem our image, and make progress in what we want to do. If the draw has given us an opportunity, we must utilize it."
