Amrouche Seeks Results To Excite Libyan Fans


Libya’s national team coach, Adel Amrouche has disclosed that his big task is to get a decent result against the Super Eagles this Saturday, in order to satisfy the country where he earns his living.

Amrouche is Algerian by birth, and made his marks as a player and coach in his home land, but is now in charge of Libya’s quest for a return to the Africa Cup of Nations, in which they play their next qualifier away to Nigeria.

While admitting that Saturday’s match at Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo will be tough, gathered that Amrocuhe is not ruling out an upset, as he says his players have responded well to their nation’s call.

Amrouche admitted that the Mediterranean Knights will face difficulties away and at home against the Super Eagles, on October 13 and 16, but insists the high spirit in his camp and the early arrival of the invited players could make a difference for them.

The former Kenya national team handler said he is happy with the invited players’ zeal and spirited turn up at their preparation camp in Tunis, ahead of their trip to Uyo aboard a chartered flight on Friday, October 12.

Amrouche said: ”Everyone is committed, and everyone answered the call to gather at the camp for players who are not associated with official matches with their clubs, waiting for the rest.

”God willing, we will satisfy the Libyan public in the next game despite the difficulty. As a coach, I am a person who is keen to accommodate all players.”
