Please forgive us •Enyimba players appeal to fans


Enyimba players have apologised to Nigerians for losing 1-0 at home to Al Ahly of Egypt on Sunday in a Group A match of the 2005 CAF Champions League in Aba.

Enyimba players have apologised to Nigerians for losing 1-0 at home to Al Ahly of Egypt on Sunday in a Group A match of the 2005 CAF Champions League in Aba.

Skipper of the team, Dele Aiyenugba, said the defeat was a surprise because many Enyimba fans expected the three points at stake in the encounter.

He said, “We have no excuse for losing that match and I am appealing to Nigerians not to relent in their efforts to take the team to greater heights.

“On behalf of my colleagues, I appeal to our fans all over the country to forgive us. We are going to work hard to get in right in subsequent matches.”

Midfielder, Muri Ogunbiyi, said it was embarrassing to have lost a home match at this stage of the competition.

Ogunbiyi said, “The good thing about it is that we have enough time to make up for it in future games. We also need an away victory and we’ll get it.”

“Our fans should bear with us for this setback, which is temporary. We are going to fight back to put smiles on their faces very soon.”

Sunday’s loss was Enyimba’s second home loss in Africa.

Enyimba will play Raja Casablanca of Morocco on Matchday Three away from home.
