Nigeria: Efugh Targets Double With Heartland

Skipper Chinedu Efugh has set a target of winning a league and CAF Confederation Cup double with Heartland in the coming year.

Efugh told MTNFootball.com he wishes to lift the Nigeria Premier League championship and the CAF Confederation Cup after he led 'The Naze Millionaires' to back-to-back success in the Nigeria Federation Cup in the last two years.

"We will compete for three trophies, the league, the Confederation Cup and the Federation Cup. My target is to win the double, the league and the Confederation Cup. That would be our priorities after we won Federation Cup back to back," he declared.

Heartland crashed out in the qualifying rounds of this year's Confederation Cup to AC Leopard of Congo, who are in the final of the club competition.

In the coming season, Efugh will reunite with childhood friend and goalkeeper Ebele Obi, who he played alongside at Rangers.

"It is good to be together again and we hope to do our best to lift the club," said the experienced central defender.
