Golden Eaglets drop four over ill discipline

09 May 2014, 17:28Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Four players were on Friday dropped from the Golden Eaglets camp in Abuja as Coach Emmanuel Amuneke wielded the stick after repeatedly warning against poor performances and conduct by his fledging players.

The players who got the marching order were Kingsley Michael; Okonkwo Orji; Chibuzor Ibekwe and Paul Obasi; even as he advised the rest to pull their weight since no undisciplined conduct would be tolerated both on and off the field of play.

"I really want to thank all of you for what you have done so far but the truth of the matter is that some of you are not doing enough and as a matter of fact, we won't  also condone indiscipline on the part of anybody," said Amuneke, the former African Footballer of the Year.

He said he was miffed with the conduct of some of the players following the team's relative success at the recently concluded WAFU B Tournament in Togo and categorically told the players that no individual player is bigger than the team or the country.

"Without discipline, we can't get to anywhere and achieve anything as such, we want you to remain focused and disciplined," he maintained.
