Orlando Pirates defender and Nigeria international, Olisa Ndah, has expressed his deepest appreciation to Akwa United and Orlando Pirates fans for their support n the CAF Confederations Cup final in Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo.

Ndah, who joined the South African club last season’s summer after completing two years at Akwa United, in what was more like a reunion, landed Uyo for the CAFCC final against Moroccan RSB Berkane.

The outcome of the game which went sour to deny the two national-capped Super Eagle his first continental club diadem, ended 5-4 on penalties after both teams played a barren full-time draw and recorded 1-1 in extra-time.
