Ezekiel Bassey - From Enyimba to Barcelona B
Thursday Feb 18, 2016. 12:20
CHAN Eagles star Ezekiel Bassey has said he hopes to win a league and cup double with Enyimba this season.
Enyimba won a record seventh in November, but they did not get off to a great start ahead of the new season when they lost 4-3 on penalties to cup holders Akwa United in Wednesday’s Charity Shield to usher in the new season.
However, Bassey said they have put behind the loss to his hometown club and will be aiming for a league and cup double by the time the new season gets underway this weekend.
“We will not only defend our league title, but also win the cup,” said the dashing winger.
“We are ready for the new season. Our problem has been that we create many chances and we do not convert them.
“That was what happened against Akwa United (in Charity Shield) and in Uganda (vs SC Vipers in the CAF Champions League). But that will soon be a thing of the past.”
