Reacting to the two-time Champions League winners, the Atlanta Olympic gold medalist blamed the lack of communication in the defence for their defeat against Pyramid.

He stated that the team will be difficult for Enyimba to overturn the three-goal deficit against the Egyptian club in the return leg in Aba. 

“Lack of communication was the biggest undoing of Enyimba against Pyramid. The defenders failed the team when it matters most as they failed to clear some of the balls in the 18-yard. It will tough for them in the second leg.”
