Chiyangi feels he is too experienced to be nervous when facing Arab opponents
Chiyangi denies any nervous feelings ahead of North African opponent
Green Eagles coach Aggrey Chiyangi believes he has enough playing and coaching experience not to be intimidated when facing a opponent from North Africa.
Chiyangi’s Eagles beat Young Buffaloes of Eswatini home and away to progress to the next round of the CAF confederation Cup where they will face Hussein Dyey of Algeria.
Chiyangi has also vowed to do everything to help his players not to be nervous when playing the Algerian side.
“I think with the level of my playing career and coaching I can never be nervous as coach maybe the players. I doubt they (players) will be all that nervous but we will try and help them. Yes they Arabs and might have the exposure but we will do everything possible to make sure we do the best, ” he said.
The former Nkana coach also revealed that their preliminary round second leg encounter was not easy but was happy to sail through to the next round.
” It was a good game and it was motivating to the whole team as we have qualified to the next round. It was not easy it was very difficult as young buffaloes played a good game in the second half but what is important is that we have qualified to the next round,” he said.
The Choma based side will have to dig deep if they want to go beyond the next round.
