Remo Coach, Osho Waves Off Relegation Thoughts



By Oladimeji Oshode

Technical Adviser of Remo Stars Football Club, Osho Fatai has expressed disappointment with his players over the draw with Kano Pillars in the MatchDay 11 of the Nigeria Professional Football League.
Speaking with Pressmen after the draw, he says the game should have been wrapped up early enough with so many chances missed by his lads.
“It’s quite unfortunate and really heart-breaking; we could have wrapped it up in the early hours of the game. In football, you don’t lose concentrations, some minutes to the end of the game and we have been punished for our numerous chances missed.”
“We have found ourselves in this situation and we have no other choice than to raise our heads and forge ahead.”
“The boys are responding to trainings but we are just embittered now because of that loss of concentration and if not for that, we should have been happy by now.”
“It is still very possible for us to maintain our Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) status, we don’t have to start dwelling on self pity because it won’t take us anywhere.”
“We threw away two points today; we will keep working and tell the boys we can still do it.” Osho disclosed immediately after the match.
