Relegation battling Shooting Stars has given its technical crew to steer the club’s ship out of the murky waters.
According to a media statement sent to Sports Village Square, the management has given an ultimatum to the technical crew of the team to immediately find a way out of the relegation zone in the ongoing Nigerian Professional League or be ready to face sack.
The Executive Chairman of the Club, Gbolagade Busari gave this stern warning on Monday at an emergency management meeting to evaluate the position of the club at rock bottom of the league table. Busari disclosed that the Technical Adviser of the team, Fatai Amoo, was specifically reminded that his position, as the head of the crew will be evaluated on match-to-match basis and the management will not hesitate to wield the big axe. “The team has a crop of young and promising players that could excel in the Nigerian League and it is the duty of the technical crew to mould them into a successful side,” Busari added. The chairman reiterated that the management will not tolerate any form of excuses on the part of the technical crew, urging that all efforts should be harnessed to see that the team survives the relegation battles.
In his own submission, the State Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Yomi Oke, promised that the government will redouble its efforts in supporting the team in its bid to bring back the glory of Shooting Stars, adding that the teeming supporters, who are not happy with the team, will soon have smiles on their faces.
