CAF Confederation Cup: Rivers United in a difficult group – Eguma

Head coach of Rivers United, Stanley Eguma, has said that they have been drawn in a tough group in this year’s CAF Confederation Cup.
The Pride of Rivers were pitted in Group A against FUS Rabat of Morocco, Tunisian outfit, Club Africain and Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) of Uganda on Wednesday.
“I have taken time to ruminate on the draw and I can only admit that we have been handed very tough opponents,” Eguma told Goal.
“But we must do everything possible to ensure that we pick one of the two tickets to the quarter final,” he continued.
“That is our target for now and I am quite optimistic that these opponents too will be afraid of us.”
Eguma also hinted about the club’s preparation toward their continental assignment, saying: “We have started work immediately and we won’t leave any stone unturned in our desire to pick the quarterfinal ticket. `
“We are happy that we have an understanding government that is giving us tremendous support which has doused our tension that there won’t be a repeat of what transpired in 2015 when we were knocked out of this same competition by Club Africain without kicking a ball.”
