Enyimba FC Chairman Has Condemned The Unsupporting Behaviour Of Hosts Etoile du Sahel

Enyimba FC chairman Felix Anyansi-Agwu has revealed that his Tunisian agents had forewarned him of the intense hostility of their Etoile du Sahel hosts ahead of their CAF Champions League, second round, second leg encounter in Sousse. Anyansi-Agwu revealed that this was because after losing 3-0 in Port Harcourt in the first leg, Etoile had returned home and told the Tunisian media that Enyimba had mistreated them and also bribed the referee.

 

Chief Felix Anyansi-Agwu  condemned the unsporting behavior of their hosts Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia ahead of the CAF Champions League second round, second leg meeting between both teams. Speaking during his team’s first training session on Tuesday evening at the Stade Mustapha Ben Jannet in Monastir, Agwu revealed that the Tunisians had resorted to using underhand tactics to frustrate and intimidate his team. The Nigerians were not met at the airport by officials of the host team and when they eventually showed up, they were driven for four hours to their hotel for a journey that normally took a little over an hour. Chairman of Enyimba International Football Club Chief Felix Anyansi-Agwu has roundly condemned the unsporting behavior of their hosts Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia ahead of the CAF Champions League second round, second leg meeting between both teams. Speaking during his team’s first training session on Tuesday evening at the Stade Mustapha Ben Jannet in Monastir, Agwu revealed that the Tunisians had resorted to using underhand tactics to frustrate and intimidate his team. The Nigerians were not met at the airport by officials of the host team and when they eventually showed up, they were driven for four hours to their hotel for a journey that normally took a little over an hour.

 

 

"Etoile had fed the Tunisian media a cocktail of lies. They said that we had provided them with a hotel infested with mosquitoes, rats and coackroaches and had failed to provide them with basic transport. They even went as far as to tell their people that two of our three goals in Port Harcourt were offside because we had bribed the Togolese referee. I am truly amazed and disappointed that a club of their stature could resort to such shocking measures to whip up sentiments against us but we were prepared for them."

 

 

Anyansi-Agwu spent an hour debunking the allegations to Tunisian journalists during the team's light training session while also revealing that reports from his agents had led them to make alternative accommodation and transportation activities. "We chose the Hotel Habib in Monastir on the outskirts of Sousse in order to provide a comfortable atmosphere for our players. We paid for this hotel ourselves, arranged our own security and transportation because of the negative attitude of our hosts. As you can see, the owner of the hotel is a decent man and staff are very warm and friendly."

 

 

Enyimba will have their second training session this evening at 7pm.
