Rangers International of Enugu technical director, ‘Chairman’ Christian Chukwu has predicted that Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia will lose to his team in this weekend’s second leg of their CAF Confederation Cup clash.
Both sides are billed to tango in their fourth group match on Sunday at Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu, and The Flying Antelopes’ former captain and coach is talking tough.
Chukwu, who went on to captain Nigeria to the country’s first conquest of the Afirca Cup of Nations on home soil in 1980, said he is not in any being overconfident, but insists Rangers will carry the day at home.
Although the Coal City side lost the first leg 2-1 last Sunday in Tunisia, ‘CC’ if of a view that Coach Gbenga Ogunbote’s wards have learnt their lesson from that game, and says they will take Etoile to the cleaners.
He, however, admitted that no side is unbeatable, considering the knack of varying football matches, but Chukwu insists it will be a familiar field for Rangers at The Cathedral, and their opponents will fall like a pack of cards.
Chukwu predicted: “Rangers I know will take their own pound of flesh in Enugu. We are not unbeatable but we will beat the Tunisians in Enugu anytime they come.”
