Cooreman eyes CCC trophy

31 December 2015, 12:40

Abuja - Newly employed head coach of Akwa United Maurice Cooreman insists the target for the club in the CAF Confederation Cup is to win the title.

This revelation comes as a big surprise especially with the club making its debut in the competition.

The Promise Keepers got the ticket after they clinched the 2015 Federation Cup but struggled for form in the 2014/15 league season.

Playing in Africa will provide the team massive joy next season according to Cooreman.

“The target is to win the trophy,” Cooreman said.

Akwa United will take on V. Club Mokanda of Congo in the preliminary round.

The matches to be played on home and away basis will be held between February 12 and 28.

In the next round of the Confederation Cup, the winners of the match between Akwa and V. Club will face the winners of the clash involving Police of Rwanda and Atlabara from South Sudan.
