Revenge: We will play attacking football – AS Police coach

Head coach of AS Police, Stanilas Akele says he will deploy all attacking football against Accra Hearts of Oak of Ghana in the second leg fixture of the preliminary round of the Confederation Cup in Cotonou on Saturday.

The Cotonou based club lost 1-0 to the Phobians in the first leg fixture in Accra a fortnight ago.

According to head coach of the Beninese side his team will be going into the second leg game with the aim of overturning the first leg scoreline to their favour.

‘We will be going into the game with 1-0 deficit and Hearts of Oak may want to stay ahead. The first solution for us is to attack. Attack to immediately pull parity thus scoring the first goal and try to put the 2nd and 3rd and also tightening the back so as not to concede a goal,’ Stanilas Akele told Jipsports.

AS Police coach also called for support from his country fellows ahead of their crucial game against Hearts of Oak.

‘I invite the public to push us to victory, to support us so that we have the victory this Saturday, my players are well defined in a good state of mind, and they are willing to give the victory to the people of Benin to continue the adventure in the African club competition,’ he added.
