Usman Abd’Allah, Coach, Enyimba International FC of Aba has called on the Abia Government to give the Enyimba Stadium standard floodlights to attract more international games to the arena.
Abd’Allah made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Aba.
The coach said the African Football Confederation’s (CAF) concession to have Enyimba’s match with Al Hilal of Sudan in the group stage of the CAF Champions League played in Aba was an “exceptional approval”.
“The closed door match we played with Rahimo of Burkina Faso was because we do not have standard floodlights.
“The main issue is getting standard floodlights and the second issue is the security at the stadium.
“They (CAF) are worried about the security situation of the Enyimba Stadium,” he said, noting that the environment for the match could be cleared some hours to the match but the floodlights, we have to get them.
“Those are the main issues CAF is complaining about but out of the two, the most crucial is the floodlights.
“I know the state government has been trying for us but we want it to do more and give us standard floodlights at the stadium.” (NAN)
