Federation Cup: Niger Tornadoes defender Ogbonnaya ‘unhappy’ with venue for final

The assistant captain of the Ikon Allah Boys tells Goal where he would have preferred to play the upcoming crunch clash against Sai Masu Gida

Niger Tornadoes defender Rueben Ogbonnaya has expressed reservation at the choice of the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna for the 2019 Federation Cup final.

According to Ogbonnaya, the proximity of Pillars to Kaduna gives them a level of advantage but he assured Tornadoes will give a good fight regardless of the choice of venue for the final tie.

“Even though it is not a strange terrain, I am not happy that it is Kaduna, because one thing for sure whether we like it or not, Pillars’ fans will dominate our own but nevertheless it is a Northern Derby and we are ready to prove ourselves,” Ogbonnaya told Goal.
