Anyansi gives up on Enyimba's title chase

Enyimba chairman, Fe­lix Anyansi Agwu, has admitted that it will be ‘difficult’ for the People’s El­ephant to claim their eighth Nigerian top flight title, even as he assured that the club will pick one of the conti­nental tickets at the of the season.

The people’s Elephant are fourth on the NPFL log with 51 points and are eight points away from league leader, Pla­teau United after 33 games.

Anyansi believed that it was the late take off of his side that affected its run in the season, adding that the team recovered very late and could definitely do nothing about the title chase at the moment

“It is always the aspira­tions of Enyimba to end the season as league champions. We started the season not too good and by the time we woke up it has been difficult to assume the position we are known for. It will be difficult for us to win the league title this season in as much as we will like to, but we are very confident that we can pick a ticket to represent Nigeria in Africa next season,” Agwu assured.
