The Head Coach of Cameroon Elite One side, Coton Sport of Garoua says the Cameroonian outfit will have an uphill task playing in the group stages of the 2021/2022 CAF Confederations Cup competition.
Speaking in a presser after the draws of the group stages on Tuesday December 28, Coach Souleymanou Aboubakar said the Coton Farmers will have a hard nut to crack facing some of the continent’s finest cream of clubs in TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Egyptian outfit, Al Masry SC of Port Said.
“At this stage of the competition, you should be ready to face any opponent and we have been placed in a very tough group. We know TP Mazembe, Al Masry, and AS Otoho d’Oyo very well. These are very big clubs.” Coach Souleymanou Aboubakar partly declared.
“We will be one of the smallest in the group. But we won’t want to be taken lightly considering the fact that our objective in the competition this year is to go further and why not better our performances of the previous season.” The tactician continued while reiterating on Coton Sport’s desires to take on the challenge and put up spirited fights during the campaign.
These feats, the Cameroon Elite One title winning trainer insisted, the Coton Farmers will be able to achieve after extreme hard work by the team characterized by intense training.
“We will keep training. This pairing is a warning and reminder that we have to work harder to bring the desired results. So it won’t be easy but what is for sure is, we will go far in this competition.” Coach Souleymanou Aboubakar concluded.
