Abuja - Chairman of Dynamic Sporting Solution Football Club (DSS), Sunday Adeleye says his team would comply with the Nigeria National League (NNL) sanctions imposed on it.
Adeleye said in Abuja that NNL was the governing body of the league and it would have to obey the decision.
The DSS chairman was sanctioned for allegedly leading a mob to beat up the referee after the NNL Week 10 home tie against Jigawa Golden Stars in Kaduna.
The club was fined the sum of N200 000 in accordance with Article 6.0 (1) rules of the game and was also suspended from attending his club’s three home matches.
“We are going to comply with the sanctions by the NNL governing body.”
“I did not organise anyone to beat up the referee up rather I was even protecting him. The whole place was rowdy and I can barely see those beating him, it was not my players neither was it me that did that, but all the same we will obey.”
“When we get to the NFA organising and disciplinary committee, I will explain everything and make claims when am set free”, he said.
NNL Secretary, Lawrence Katkem said that the club was being sanctioned for bringing the game to disrepute, stating that the issue of bribe would be decided by the NFF.
He said that the sanctions were given based on the reports submitted by the match commissioner.
