Nigeria: Enyimba Targets League Shield

Aba Elephants, Enyimba are set to recover lost ground after failing to make an impact last term.

Six domestic league titles (2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2010), two Nigerian Cup (2005, 2009) and two African titles (2003, 2004) in a decade made Enyimba a household name, not only in Nigeria but across the globe.

Enyimba became Nigeria's most consistent team on the continent, but missed the chance to play in Africa in 2012 and is set for a second consecutive absence in the continent.

At the end of the last season, Enyimba finished out of the continental slots and had to manage internal disputes which erupted from their Cup exit.

Former Super Eagles coach and World Cup star, Austin Eguavoen, left the club after the Cup exit, while his assistant, Abdul Maikaba headed for Kano Pillars.

For club supremo, Felix Anyansi, the situation presents an opportunity to reorganize the club.
