Warri Wolves off to Freetown, promise victory

Warri Wolves

One of Nigeria’s representatives in this year’s CAF Confederation Cup, Warri Wolves, Wednesday morning departed the Murtala Muhammed airport, Lagos,  for  Freetown; venue of this weekend’s clash with FC Kallon. The club departed with a resolve to return home with victory.

Wolves’ coach, Maurice Cooreman, says he has adequate knowledge of his Seria Leonian opponent to be able to plot their downfall even in their backyard.

“They are very good side and they play good football, I know their strong points as well as their weak points and so we are getting down to business once we get to Freetown,” Cooreman enthused

“Our aim is to go for victory and I believe I have a team capable of doing  that for me,” the Belgian tactician concluded.

Also Warri Wolves’ priced striker, Jude Aneke, is hopeful he will be able to re-enact his goal-scoring form like while with Kaduna United

“I am very happy to be back playing on the continent. Currently I have scored just 3 goals in the local league but I hope to score more goals both in the league and on the continent,” he said.

Aneke netted in 6 goals for Kaduna United in last season’s CAF Confederation Cup and is hopeful he can do much more for Warri Wolves this season.


Wolves failed to make it beyond the preliminaries stage when they last participated in the same competition two seasons ago.

Eighteen players made the trip to Freetown which included Eagles’ stars Chigozie Agbim, Sunday Mba and Azubuike Egwuekwe as well as last season’s NPL hot shot Jude Aneke.
