El-Kanemi head for Chad



Newly promoted Nigeria Premier League side, El-Kanemi Warriors, are heading for neighbouring Chad to intensify preparation for the new season which begins next month.

Chairman of the team, Zanna Mohammed Mala told supersport.com that the team will use the opportunity to scout for talents in Chad.

“El-Kanemi will play friendly matches against Chadian champions, Gazelle and Fullah Edifice. We have a good working relationship with both Ndjamena based clubs,” Mala said to supersport.com.

As Chadian champions, Gazelle will play in the Caf Champions League preliminary round against Egypt’s Zamalek in February 2013.

Before the last season kicked off, El-Kanemi were in Garoua for an international friendly against perennial Cameroonian champions, CotonSport and were also expected in Chad.

The club have since contracted Zakary Baraje to replace Kelechi Emeteole, who left after guiding the club to the elite class.

El-Kanemi won the FA Cup (now Federation Cup) twice in 1991 and 1992, but lost their Premier League status in 2007.

Top Nigerian stars like Samson Siasia, Austin Igbinabaro, Nduka Ugbade, Rotimi Sunday, David Tyakase and Ghanaian star, Joetex Frimpong, have played for the Maiduguri based club.
