Nigerian champions Enyimba have climbed four places to 12th in the latest Confederation of African Football club rankings released in May.
Enyimba’s rise reflects their standing on the African continent and comes on the back of an impressive campaign in the Confederation Cup that has seen them make the last-16 where they will face Egyptian side Pyramids FC.
The two-time African champions are Nigeria’s sole remaining representatives on the continent and are also the country’s sole representatives in CAF’s list of the Top 30 African clubs.
Egyptian giants Ah Ahly top the list of Africa’s best clubs followed by Tunisian side Esperance and Morrocan powerhouses Wydad Casablanca.
South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns, Zamalek of Egypt, Congolese side TP Mazembe, Raja Casablanca of Morocco, Tunisia’s Etoile du Sahel, Guinean side Horoya AC, Sudanese side Al Hilal Omdurman and Moroccan club RS Berkane, in that order, make up the top 11 clubs on the continent.
