Kwara United FC has redeemed its pledge to players after their qualification for the next stage in the ongoing TotalEnergies CAF Confederation Cup competition.
The team defeated AS Douanes of Niger Republic 3-0 in Nigeria, and played out a goalless draw in Niamey on Sunday to scale through the competition.
Before the battle of Niamey, the team’s management, led by the Chairman, Kumbi Titiloye, had promised the team a N2m cash gift if they qualified for the next round of the competition.
The General Manager of the club, Bashir Badawiy, in his message to the players at the training session, said the pledge had been redeemed, while efforts were being intensified to have the bonuses paid.
While commending the players for the qualification, he reminded them of the bigger challenges ahead, especially their next opponent, RSB Berkane of Morocco.
Also Kwara United will play the Moroccans in the first leg at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Lagos on Oct. 9, with the return leg fixed for Oct. 15, in Morocco.
Badawiy therefore, charged the players to be more committed, as the management, with the support of the government, would keep motivating them to do their best.
He commended the Governor, Malam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, for his regular support to the team which enabled it to perform ooptimally
