Meanwhile, Siasia has also wielded the big stick by dropping
seven of the players in the team's camp after the 3-3 draw with Wikki Tourists
“I have given all these players enough time to showcase what
they can bring on the table, but I am so disappointed that till this minute
they still have not been able to convince me, so they have to give way for
others to come and show me and my technical crew what they can offer.
“I thank them for their contribution to the success of the
team in the past, but we have to move on, if they show signs of improvement in
their clubs they can be recalled to the team,” Siasia said.
Siasia has also invited Sharks FC defender Chima Akas and
Warri Wolves defender Semiu Laidi to report to camp immediately.
