Tenger’s Job Not Tied To African Ticket – Kwara Utd

Kwara United has declared that the job of its coach, Justin Tenger, is safe in spite of the side’s quest to win at least a place to one of the CAF club competitions in 2011.
Vice chairman of the club, Abdulrasaq Owolabi Wopa, told that the Ilorin side does not have any plan to shift out the former Niger Tornadoes’ handler at the end of the season.
Wopa did not categorically say that the contract of the coach would be extended at the end of this season, but he made it clear that Kwara United does not plan to allow the coach leave when the 2009/2010 season ends.
“It is not true,” reacted Wopa to insinuation that Tenger’s contract might not be extended at the end of this season if he fails to guide Kwara United to either the CAF Champions League or the CAF Confederation Cup in 2011.
But Wopa stated that the club is still committed to finish among the top sides in the Premier League to ensure that its target at the outset of this season, which is to qualify for one of Africa’s club competitions, is met.
The Kwara United management board is confident that the team would end up picking a ticket to one of Africa’s club tournaments for 2011 despite the imperious form of leading sides like Enyimba and Kano Pillars.
“We have done our best for the team so far this season. And the (Kwara) state governor, His excellency, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has made sure that the club has enjoyed unflinching support whether financially and morally. The players and officials are motivated for the task of doing well in the Premier League and you have seen their performance so far.
“But we have set for ourselves target that must be met at the end of the season and I must tell you that we are very much on course to meet that target irrespective of the performances of our rivals in the league. I am confident that this team will pick a continental ticket at the end of this season,” Wopa assured.
