Enyimba coach Paul Aigbogun believes the ongoing Super 4 tournament is a perfect way for his team to prepare for the 2016 Caf Champions League.
The People’s Elephants, alongside Warri Wolves, Nasarawa United and Akwa United are participating in this year’s edition which is holding in Kaduna and despite drawing 1-1 in their first game against Nasarawa United, Aigbogun believes the competition is a very good way for them to get their preparations underway.
“Having played just four or five matches against smaller teams, this was our first top flight friendly and I believe we will improve (with it). I’m okay with some aspects of our play and equally not happy but our starting was good. We are here to compete to the best of our abilities and see what we can do. We should come up well,” he npfl.ng.
He however added that they are still not fully prepared for the continent, but posited that they still have time to get ready.
“We are not fully prepared at this point for the continental outing but we still have three weeks to go so we will be ready. I’m not satisfied with the performance of my team, we started the game very well, but we gave the game away in the second half,” he added.
Enyimba and Warri Wolves both play in the Champions League, while Nasarawa United and Akwa United are in the Confederations Cup.
