AITEO CUP FINAL: Pillars plan five-day camping in Benin

Pillars can report that the technical crew of Kano Pillars has submitted a proposal of a five-day training camping in Benin City to the club’s management ahead of the AITEO Cup final clash against Rangers International FC of Enugu slated for Asaba, Delta State on Wednesday.

The club’s technical adviser Ibrahim Musa told that the letter was submitted to the management last Friday. He said the technical crew made the plans to enable the players have full preparation and acclimatize with weather condition in the  area before the final. Musa explained further that the team will move to Asaba two days before the game.

“That was our plans and we are hopeful for the approval from the management. This is the final clash and we need more concentration to enable us get a deserving result in the final. We are facing one of the best teams in the country and we have to prepare well for it. We want to have five days training camping in Benin City to strategise for the game and move to Asaba two days before the game,” Musa said to
Musa however said the team has realised its mistakes and will work on it before the final.

“We have noticed some areas we need to work on before the final game against Rangers. We scored two goals against Katsina United in the semi-final and we thought it was all over and our boys relaxed and allowed Katsina United came back from two goals down and got equaliser. I observed two things in the game; we made some defensive errors and our strikers were very selfish as well.

“They were always eager to score that was why they made some errors. The same thing happened in the game against Enyimba FC in the quarter-final. We have to solve this problem convert all our chances if we want to beat a team like Rangers International. Rangers game is going to be a tough match and we have to get our tactics right.”
