Wolves restate commitment to CAF Confederation Cup

Warri Wolves, the Nigerian representative in the CAF Confederation Cup, has reassured its fans on the club’s commitment to the African club competition.

The media manager of the Warri based club, Moses Etu informed that the Seasiders plan to honour the return leg of the Confederation Cup against Dedebit in Ethiopia after a 2-0 win in Warri.

According to Etu, there are reports that the team may not be able to honour the return leg of the CAF Confederation Cup in Ethiopia and may end up the way of Dolphin FC of Port Harcourt.

“I wish to state it clearly that the Government and those in charge of the Club are working seriously to see that the team leave the shores of this country as planned,” Etu stated.

“The players, 20 in number have been moved to the Club Camp in Warri since Monday morning to prepare their mind for the journey as the team is expected to leave Warri tomorrow (Thursday) morning and will spend the night in Lagos before flying to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia  on Friday morning.

“However, we wish to assure our fans and the general public that we have a dynamic Sports Loving Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, who has remained a source of inspiration to the Club and I am sure will not allow such thing to happen,” Etu insisted.

“It is pertinent to point out that we also have the Chairman of the Sports Commission in Amaju Pinnick who incidentally is the President of the Nigeria Football Federation. He has done more than enough to sustain the tempo in Warri Wolves and will not close his eyes to see such thing happen to the Club”.

“We therefore urge all our fans to ignore such reports and continue to pray for a successful outing as the players are well determined to do the country proud. We must avoid anything that will distract the players at this time,” Etu concluded.
