By Olayinka Elebute
Sunshine Football Club of Akure Chief Coach Ayodeji Ayeni, has revealed to Gongnews.net that Kano Pillars are a familiar foe to his team as they square up against Kano Pillars in the quarterfinals of the Aiteo Cup in Lokoja on friday.
Speaking with journalist the coach said the team has met in the league and when we play against them at home nobody gave us a chance to beat them so we know them more playing against the rookies team who are not known to many big team.
I must confess to you the Aiteo cup is all about upset so we will do what we can do to advance to the next stage of the Aiteo Cup so we are prepare for Kano Pillars and my team are in good shape yo play them Ayeni said.
Meanwhile, Coach of Green Beret Musa Haruna has advised Sunshine Stars on what to do if they want to win the Aiteo Cup.
if they have been working hard they need to work more harder the teams in Aiteo Cup are also big team in premier league so they need do more work, if the way they play Green Beret and narrowly progress with penalty they have to re-strategised to be able to do well to be able to score goals during the regulations time and now they will be meeting Kano pillars in the quarterfinals it may not work for them so they need to score goals in regulations time and I see them as a good team so they may need to work hard.
