CAF Champions League: “Plateau United FC Will Surely Overcome Esperance Of Tunisia And Qualify For Group Stage But…………. Haggai Katoh


Plateau United Football Club CAF Champions League match winner against visiting Stade Mandji of Gabon at the Moshood Abiola Stadium on Sunday, Haggai Katoh, has said the Jos based club has every it takes but gave the only factor that might affect the club’s progression to the lucrative group stage.

In his words exclusively to, “We know we are going to play a very good and compact side in Esperance of Tunisia, of which we aren’t given a chance by most people out there, but we will shock and surprise alot of people.”

Haggai, brimming with confidence on their qualification over Esperance when they meet in the second round gives the only reason that might stand as their stumbling block: “We all have made up our minds to beat Esperance and qualify to the group stage, we are not overrating them, but it’d just that we are not involved in any competitive league matches to prepare us the more. But look at them, they will be playing a very important match on the 30th and that will keep them in more competitive fitness. Look at us, when we leave Abuja now, we go back to Jos and start training without any league match or matches. Despite this, we all the players have made up our minds to put in all we’ve got, to overcome Esperance and qualify to the group stage.”

Haggai Katoh scored the only goal in the return leg in Abuja as Plateau United FC knocked out Stade Mandji of Gabon 2-1 on agregate after the first leg in Gabon ended 1-1.
