Sunshine Stars Coach: It Is Not Over

Sunshine Stars Coach: It Is Not OverSunshine Stars coach, Gbenga Ogunbote, has declared that his side is still in the running for the CAF Champions League final ticket despite a 3-3 draw with Al Ahly in Saturday’s semifinal first leg in Ijebu-Ode.

Ogunbote told the Sporting Press that his squad can still turn around the game in Cairo in two weeks’ time.

“We have seen it, we have paid the price of our late preparation but I can say that now that we have played them and known a few things about them, we can still turn things around in the return leg
match,” Ogunbote said.

“No doubt they are an experienced side having won the trophy six times and are regarded as Africa’s team of the century, but if we can get this kind of performance in the second leg, nothing will stop us from upstaging them.”

The Sunshine Stars gaffer pleaded for patience as he plots the way to the Akure side’s revival in the reverse game.

“You don’t clap with one hand. We need to be patient. We have learnt a few lessons thereof and with adequate preparation we can still turn the result around.

“If they can come here and score three why can’t we do the same there or even more. We are determined and we can do it. We need to be positive about it and have confidence  in  ourselves.”
