Bayelsa bank on new signings to hit Africa by storm

The Yenagoa side have expressed delight at their new players with whom they hope to conquer Africa together in the Confederation Cup

CAF Confederation Cup hopeful, Bayelsa United have reiterated their desire to go as far as possible in the second tier African club competition.

The Yenagoa side were drawn bye alongside Warri Wolves to the first round of the competition but Bayelsa United's Media Officer, George Ameli is refusing to be carried away by such accolade.

Ameli told Goal that the club would ensure that the country's image is never dented in the competition when they eventually battle the winner of Republic of Congo's Kondzo and their Camerounian opponents next year.

The club's spokesman said he hinged his optimism on the new players in the fold of the Yenagoa side whom have blended seamlessly with those with the team last season ahead of their assault on the continent and in the domestic competitions.

Ameli mentioned three of their latest acquisitions as Mutiu Adegoke and Olufemi Oladapo who both crossed over from 3SC of Ibadan and Tswanya Samuel who surprisingly left Kano Pillars who are campaigning in the lucrative CAF Champions League for Bayelsa United.

"We don't fear any foe at all. We are ready for any team that comes our way in the league and also in the CAF Confederation Cup. We were thinking we would be starting off from the preliminary round before news reached us that we have been drawn bye. We would be set for either of Congo's Kondzo or the Cameroun's FA Cup champions’” Ameli told Goal.

"We have the players to do the job and we have a sound technical crew to assist with the other part. Experienced players we have acquired have also made us to be raring to go. We have Mutiu Adegoke and Olufemi Oladapo who both crossed over from 3SC of Ibadan and Tswanya Samuel who had CAF Champions League experience with Enyimba before joining Kano Pillars last season where he featured in the same competition," he concluded.
