Enyimba coach Fatai Osho has revealed how to make Enyimba players believe in come back following their 4-1 loss to the Egyptian side in Cairo.
The Aba giant lost the first-leg of their CAF Confederation Cup match and would need to score three un-replied goals to progress to the semifinal.
Ahead of the return leg, Osho told Completesport that the technical crew needs to work on the players psychologically and make them believe in the comeback.
“We have to let them (the players) know that it’s not over yet. We have to play and score and not concede; if we can do that, we have hope. A situation where we can score one or two goals that brings hope and we have to work on their psyche.
He credits the players’ performance in the first half of the first leg but disclosed they lost the game because of tiredness.
“We had our game plan, and going into the game, they stuck to it. We saw a lot of promises in the first half. In the second half, we lost it when we started noticing a lot of tiredness. They started playing out of shape and exposed themselves a lot.
