Ahead of their crucial second-leg tie against Fiorentina on Thursday, Sivasspor of Turkey’s head coach Riza Calimbay has charged Super Eagles skipper Ahmed Musa, his compatriot, Leke James and other players to give their best in the game.

Calimbay knew the importance of the game and urged his players to give everything in the game.
“When you look at the opponent, maybe it is a team that is 10 times more than our budget. It is a team with very high-quality players, but we will do good things in this match, just as we did before.
“The first half of the game was there, now we will play the second half. Of course, we know what a dangerous team they are and they will do very well. We will take measures accordingly.
“They know us from the first game, we know them. I believe it will be a very competitive match. This match is also very important for the Sivas community.
” I believe the fans will fill the stands. A historic match for Sivasspor. If we pass this game, we will play in the quarter-finals. This a very important thing for a humble team like us. I believe we will do good things.
“We’re playing a lot of league games right now. We also play European cup matches. They have fatigue, injury, and boredom. As a whole team, we focused on this game. We will do anything to win”, he said.
