3SC places technical crew under close watch

20 May 2013, 16:47

Ibadan- The board of Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan on Monday said that it had  placed the technical crew of the team under close watch.

Toyin Akintunde, the Chairman of 3SC Board,  said this in Ibadan while addressing newsmen.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the  technical team has  as members Coaches Babatunde Odubola and Akeem Busari,

Akintunde said the board’s move was sequel to the 2-0  home defeat suffered by the team to Heartland of Owerri in a Week 12 match of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

He added that the move was also to  ascertain whether the technical crew would comply with the decisions of the team’s management,  having  met all the players’ requirements.

``We all sat down to x-ray the match after the loss and the players apologised for the error, promising that they will do well in subsequent matches.

``We have  taken a few decisions  which are  not for public consumption yet,  and for now we shall be watching to see if things are the way we want it to be,’’ he said.

On the call by fans that members of the technical crew be changed, Akintunde said:  ``It is normal for fans to make their own request but is the duty of the management to know what to do in situations  like these  when results do  not favour the team.’’

NAN had earlier reported that the 3SC home defeat to Heartland on May 15 had unsettled the team’s camp.
