Conf Cup: Horoya’s Bolaji Sarkin eager to face Enyimba


All roads lead to the Aba Township Stadium Sunday as Enyimba host Horoya AC of Guinea in the first leg Quarterfinals of the CAF Confederation Cup.

The peoples Elephants who are currently the only Nigerian team still in contention following the exit of Rangers International will be hoping to post an impressive performance at home before heading for the return leg away to Conakry on March 8.

Already Enyimba fans we gathered are being mobilised for massive turnout for the all-important Sunday clash. It is safe to say the Enyimba are a good shape going into Sunday’s clash after winning four out of their last five league matches, with only the 2-0 defeat to Nasarawa United as the only sour point.

Interestingly Horoya has equally lost just one match in their last four league matches  going into the clash.

If there is one player who is however eager to face Enyimba and perhaps play the spoiler it is Nigerian striker and Horoya forward Bolaji Sakin.

Enyimba set to host Horoya

The pacy striker only recently revealed his readiness to face Enyimba noting that it will offer him an opportunity to reconnect with Nigerian football on one hand and also prove that he is still in top shape and ready to deliver for his Guinean side.

““I will be very happy to meet Enyimba because I even want to come home so that I will meet some of my fans and my friends. So it will be a very good game, “he enthused in a recent chat with Brilla fm.

The former Abia Warriors ace will no doubt be seeking for opportunity to shine at the expense of the homers.

The current shape of both teams however is an indication that fans are in for celebration of fireworks.
