Enyimba coach Usman Abdalla has insisted they will not take South African second division club TS Galaxy lightly when they clash Sunday for a place in the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup.
Galaxy shot into prominence when they defied odds to become the first lower-tier team to clinch the Nedbank Cup, thereby earning a place in the CAF Confederation Cup.
‘The Rockets’ have taken that form to their debut appearance in the Confederation Cup, winning all of their first four matches in the competition.
And having beaten reputable Premier Soccer League sides en route to their domestic Cup triumph, Abdalla has maintained ‘The Rockets’ should now be rated at the level of South Africa’s big teams.
“They (South African teams) are teams with very good techniques and tactics and you know they have a very good youth development over there, so you can see they have very good technical abilities and tactical abilities.
“We are not taking anything for granted. We are expecting the team to be a very, very good team.
“They win their matches away and they are a goal scoring team at away. So we’re all aware of that, that is why you can see how we’ve been preparing a lot so that we can work on our technical and tactical ability that can match this team.”
