Agbim confident in NPL clubs for CAF competitions

10 December 2014, 14:29

Lagos - Nigeria goalkeeper Chigozie Agbim believes Nigerian clubs will be amongst the best performers in next year's two African club competitions.

Enyimba and Kano Pillars will participate in the Champions League while Dolphins and Warri Wolves will take part in the Confederation Cup in 2015.

Gombe United and Nigeria's 'B' captain and goalkeeper team Chigozie Agbim feels the four sides are all good enough to make it to the respective finals of the two competitions.

"I strongly believe in the quality of players, coaches and management of the four teams representing the country in next year's continental club competitions," he told the Africanfootball website.

"Enyimba are already former champions, while Kano Pillars have got as far as the semi-finals of the same competition.

"Dolphins and Warri Wolves have not also done badly when they have represented the country in past competitions.

"With the way they performed in the league this past season, they can hold their own against any team on the continent. All teams will get as far as the last four of the two competitions."

The draw for the competitions will be staged in Cairo on Thursday.
