CCL: Sunshine warns of Ahly antics

The management of Sunshine Stars has described the report that Al Ahly’s squad is bereft of star players over injury as false alarm, saying the club’s opponent in the CAF Champions League semi final clash billed for Ijebu Ode tomorrow has deployed the report to unsettle the host.

Al Ahly had posted on its website on Wednesday that five of its key players would miss the impending game due to injury.

But a statement by the Executive Director, Ondo State Football Agency (OSFA), Mike Idoko, warned Nigerians not to celebrate the purported report.

“We are not new to the antics of the Egyptians as we know they merely sold a dummy which we have refused to buy,” Idoko said yesterday.

“We have our agents monitoring them and from what they are feeding us, these players are training with them and are part of the team coming to Ijebu Ode,” the OSFA boss added.

Meanwhile, latest reports indicate that the Ondo State Governor, Olusegun Mimiko, would rest his re-election campaign to attend the first leg semi final clash in Ijebu Ode to support the state-owned club to victory.

“The governor is committed to Sunshine’s success in this Champions League campaign and will not spare any effort at actualizing the success,” Idoko further said.
