Kwara United FC has redeemed its pledge to players after their qualification for the next stage in  the ongoing TotalEnergies CAF Confederation Cup competition.

The team defeated AS Douanes of Niger Republic 3-0 in Nigeria, and played out a goalless draw in Niamey on Sunday to scale through the competition.

Before the battle of Niamey, the team’s management, led by the Chairman, Kumbi Titiloye, had promised the players N2m cash gift if  they qualified for the next round of the competition.

The General Manager of the club, Bashir Badawiy, in his message to the players at the training session, said the pledge had been redeemed, while efforts were being intensified to have the bonuses paid.

While commending the players for the qualification, he reminded them of the bigger challenges ahead, especially their next opponent, RSB Berkane of Morocco.

Also the Kwara United will play the Moroccans in the first leg at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Lagos on Oct. 9, with the return leg fixed for Oct. 15, in Morocco.

Badawiy therefore, charged the players to be more committed, as the management, with the support of the government, would keep motivating them to do   their best.

He commended the Governor, Malam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, for his regular  support to the team which enabled it to perform optimally.

The general manager also commended the Executive Chairman of the  State Sports Commission, Malam Bola Mogaji, for his support to the team.

“This is Kwara United FC’s third appearance in CAF competitions, having played in CAF Cup in 19992000 and in 20062007 seasons” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the united team emerged   fourth in the 20212022 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season to qualify for the continental engagement.

NAN also reports that the club has been tipped alongside Remo Stars, who were  now out for the competition to represent Nigeria  in the Confederation Cup.
