Hans Van der Pluijm fears the backlash
By Patrick Akoto
Berekum Chelsea coach Hans Van der Pluijm insists he is not getting carried away after the shock 5-0 win over Raja Casablanca in the CAF Champions League qualifier on Sunday.
The Ghanaian champions produced a close to perfect display to take a healthy advantage ahead of the return leg clash of the second round qualifier.
The debuntants hold the advantage to progress to the final qualifying round but their Dutch coach says they will have to fight hard to qualify.
“It’s a good score line for us but you know we have to keep our cool and try to finish the job in two weeks time,” Pluijm told GHANAsoccernet.com
“We know the pedigree of Raja at their own backyard and they will attempt to get the goals in front of their home fans, so we’re not getting complacent at all.
“I believe we have a great chance to qualify and that’s what we’ll be working at in the next couple of days. We’ll go there to protect our goals and try to get one or two.”
Chelsea will meet either Nigeria’s Dolphin FC or Coton Sport if they progress.
