Ahead of the highly anticipated CAF Confederation Cup final clash against SuperSport United, TP Mazembe boss Moise Katumbi Moise has urged fans to fill up the stadium on Sunday.
The Ravens chairman visited youngster Christ Kisangala who is nursing a knee injury in Belgium and urged the club's faithful to support the reigning CAF Confed champions.
Mazembe will want to retain their trophy and ensure they use their home advantage in the first leg at Lubumbashi as Katumbi is calling for a general mobilisation.
Katumbi reckons that his troops deserve a full stadium for the final and has stressed the importance of a win at home.
“I know that TPM supporters are always able to mobilise to take their team to success,” said the boss to the club website.
“It is with the support of a large audience that our players will pull a lot of strength from the stands to defeat SuperSport.
“The players expect everyone to show a sacred union around the team to win..”
Meanwhile, Katumbi has urged the club's die hard supporters to come out in numbers in both finals, including attending the final training session.
On the other hand, manager Kazembe Mihayo will hope to have his experienced Malian centre back, Salif Coulibaly, who is working to regain full fitness.
