–For accepting to take part in Copa Lagos
Former Crown of Ogbomosho coach, Lawrence Akpokona has praised the efforts of Enyimba in accepting to participate in 2014 edition of Copa Lagos. Akpokona said in Benin that it took a lot of courage for Enyimba to accept to play in Beach Soccer this year.
“We have always known Enyimba as a team that plays on normal pitch. For the team to now play on Beach means they have accepted to expand their frontiers.
“I like what the management has done because playing on the Beach will help make the players stronger when the new season starts”, says Akpokona.
“I will like to watch them when the competition starts to see how they will perform. I also know that other clubs in Nigeria are eager to play Beach soccer because Enyimba blazed the trail.
“I am happy for them and hope they will give their best,” Akpokona said.
Enyimba will battle with Stores, Pepsi Selected side and Barcelona at the Beach Soccer tournament.
