Bayelsa United skipper credits Bosso for club feat

02 April 2014, 17:14

Lagos - Captain of Bayelsa United, Solomon Junior says the team’s success so far in the 2014 CAF Confederation Cup could be traced to the club’s former chief coach, Ladan Bosso.

Junior said that their success was due to the recruitment of players by Bosso.

He spoke in reaction to the 2014 CAF Confederation Cup play-off draw conducted in Cairo, Egypt on Tuesday.

The draw saw the Yenagoa-based side drawn against Sewe Sport FC of Cote d'Ivoire, with the first leg encounter scheduled for the weekend of April 18 to April 20.

“Ladan Bosso, our former chief coach is the architect of our success so far. This is because he recruited 100 per cent of the current players in Bayelsa United FC. He was the coach of the team last season and he led us to qualification for the competition. His legacies are still here with us.”

“We are actually feeling his absence, but we have to move on,’’ the club captain said.

Junior, however, said that playing against the Ivorien side would not be an easy task.

“It’s not going to be easy, but we the players are ready to take up the challenge, irrespective of the low motivation from the club management,’’ he said.
