CAF CC: Ogunbote targets semi final spot, wants decent NPFL finish


Enugu Rangers head coach Gbenga Ogunbote has stated that his target this season in the CAF Confederations Cup is to help the Flying Antelopes reach the semi final stage of the competition.

Rangers qualified for the group stage of the competition after defeating Bantu FC of Lesotho 4 – 2 on aggregate in the group stage play offs. The team’s first group match will be against Salitas FC of Burkina Faso in February of 2019.

Ogunbote who tutored Sunshine Stars of Akure to a semi final finish in 2012 in the CAF Confederations Cup has stated that his target is not to fall below his previous positions at the championship; “The truth of the matter is that I’ve always set a target for myself. I’ve played on the continent before and my worst result has been the semi final both in the CAF champions League and confederations Cup.

I have set that standard and if I want to see myself to have done anything worthwhile on the continent, I must not fall below the standard. This time I will like to get to the finals and for the league I’ve always love to finish in a very appreciable position.

Enugu Rangers will face CS Sfaxien of Tunisia, Etoile Du Sahel also of Tunisia and Salitas of Burkina Faso in group B of the competition in the draw conducted on Monday at the CAF headquarters in Cairo.

The Flying Antelopes so far are unbeaten in six games in the competition winning five with just a draw.
