Lagos - Coach of FC IfeanyiUbah Mitko Dobrev on Sunday hailed Wikki Tourists Football Club for beating his team 3-0 in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) encounter.

Dobrev praised hosts Wikki Tourists during the post-match interview which followed his team’s 3-0 loss at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium in Bauchi in a Match Day 13 fixture.

“I am very impressed with the professional manners of Wikki’s play and they are a team not to toy with.

“But I am not pleased with the performance of my team, especially the goalkeeper, and I think that is the end of his participation.

“My team had been leading all long till today, and the poor officiating also contributed to our performance. But I say congratulations, and congratulations to Wikki," the coach said.
