Former NPFL veteran and LMC players advisor Victor Ezeji has stated that Nigeria can look forward to a better continental representation next season based on the quality of the top three teams that emerged from the just concluded NPFL Super six namely Enyimba, Kano Pillars and Enugu Rangers.
Ezeji speaking in a chat with Brila however advised the clubs to ensure they start planning early enough for their continental sojourn so as not to be caught napping when the time comes for them to start their continental challenge. He also hailed Enyimba for rising up to the occasion when it matters most.
“The are the best we have at the moment, it was a tight competition but some how Enyimba been Enyimba were able to make it ahead of others. I think we will have a better representation on the continent this year if only they will start preparation in earnest which have always been the problem of Nigerian football.”
Enyimba and Kano Pillars will represent Nigeria in the CAF champions league while Enugu Rangers will campaign in the CAF Confederation cup and the fourth continental representative will emerge from the Federation cup.
