The Future is Bright for Enyimba – Finidi After Defeat to Wydad

Enyimba head coach, Finidi George, insists the future is bright for his side despite their disappointing ouster from the African Football League.

The People’s Elephant were dumped out of the competition 4-0 on aggregate by Morocco’s Wydad Athletic Club.

Enyimba lost 1-0 at home, before falling 3-0 in the reverse fixture.

The Nigerian champions paraded a number of young players in the game including Flying Eagles midfielder, Daniel Daga, Eze Ekwutoziam, Chidiebere Nnachi, Chibueze Izuogu and Adiele Eriugo.

“We have a lot of young players,” Finidi was quoted by

“We are working towards something. I think in the coming years, these players will graduate and they will have that experience.

“For them, it’s a big experience playing in a big tournament like this. Unfortunately, we didn’t qualify. So, we’ll learn from what we’ve done wrong and try to be better in the future.

“It’s a good tournament, and for the young players that are coming up, it’s also a good experience for them. In one or two years they will have the experience and whenever they compete like this, they’ll do much better.”
