There has been sharp criticism across Nigeria following unimpressive display by Enyimba FC in African Football League Thursday night.

By implication, Enyimba’s 4-0 defeat by Wydad AC is not just the last nail in the coffin for the club, but also mean that there is no hope for all NPFL clubs.

Enyimba were beaten 1-0. Then any pipe dream was quickly dashed as Wydad raced into a three-goal lead in the first half, thanks to Ayoub El Amloud, Jamal Harkass and Yahia Attiyat Allah. There was no goal in second half so the hosts coasted home with 4-0 aggregate.

Reacting, the Chief Editor for Pulse Sports, Solace Chukwu, blame Enyimba footballers, the club management and just about every aspects of the team.

“It was to be expected, really,” Chukwu told Daily Post.

“For all the financial incentives laid out, Enyimba never rose to the challenge of presenting as a prestigious African side.

“Their administrative process continues to be as opaque and haphazard as ever, even under new management, and their recruitment in the off-season was underwhelming.

“That’s before even coming to the strength of their opponents, Wydad. I cannot see how anybody, whether within the club or outside of it, could have expected any better.”
