Ahead of their CAF Champions league first round, second leg game against Al Malakia of South Sudan, Kano Pillars coach Okey Emordi has said that his team will be approaching the game like they lost the first leg.
The Nigerian champions won 2-0 in South Sudan two weekends ago and play hosts this weekend in Kano, with Emordi believing that the best approach will be to ignore the result of the first leg and focus on the second leg. “The approach we want to have is to play like we didn’t win the first leg,” he began. “We have to forget about what happened two weeks ago and focus on what will happen now because they may also have improved between then and now.
“So we have to play like we lost the first leg because we have to show more hunger so that we can complete the job. We cannot be thinking about the next round now. We just have to focus on ensuring we get past this stage,” he added.
