Zachary disappointed at poor turnout in Federation Cup

By Lexi Elo
Akwa United United coach Zachary Baraje says he is disappointed at the poor turnout of fans when his side took on Nasarawa United in the first semi-final of the Nigeria Federation Cup on Wednesday. The attendance at the MKO Abiola Stadium averaged a little above a thousand spectators, as the Promised Keepers sealed their first Federation Cup final appearance courtesy of Aniekpeno Udoh’s first half strike.
“I am not happy with the fans in Abeokuta not coming out to watch this game. There is no glamour any longer in the Federation Cup, those days before the start of any game; the stadium is filled to capacity. The fanfare is lost. Even when we play our home matches in the league, you will see more than these [spectators],” Baraje told Goal.

Having failed in his previous attempts to emerge as champion, the veteran coach believes his side can beat to Lobi at the Teslim Balogun Stadium to lift the coveted trophy.
“I have been to the Federation Cup about three times without winning, this is the time to emerge victorious,” he concluded.
