Speaking to reporters after the team’s arrival from Senegal on Monday, Bajo said they would prepare very well for their clash with Esperance of Tunisia, a formidable side that won the CAF league title last year.

He applauded the players and coaching staff for making all football fans in West Coast Region and the country happy.
