The Management of Sharks FC has told players and technical crew to get out of relegation waters by the end of the first stanza of the league or face severe sanctions.
General Manager of the team, Okey Kpaluku, handed down the warning during a crucial meeting with the technical crew on Saturday.
Kpaluku, who was particularly disappointed with the manner the boys approached the last match against Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan, described the attitude of the boys as unbecoming of a side that wants to win silverware.
“You must rise up to the occasion and make sure you are not at the bottom of the league table by the start of the second round of the league or be prepared for the worst from Management ”, Kpaluku said.
“How can you put up such an awful performance against 3SC and you expect me to be happy with you, that was one match you should have won with relative ease”.
He ordered the Head Coach, Daboere Dokubo, to ensure that any player who refuses to fall in line with the clubs drive of getting out of relegation waters, does not go unpunished, stressing that the days of treating gross misconduct with levity was over.
Kpaluku seized the opportunity to inform the players and officials that the LMC, has formally approved the team’s relocation to its traditional home ground (The Sharks Stadium) for rest of the season, beginning with this weekend’s cracker against Nasarawa united.
Responding to the cheering news of a return to the Sharks Stadium, Captain of the side Odinga Odinga assured Management that Sharks will not be relegated and promised to give fifty free match ticket to the first fifty fans for Sunday’s fixture against Nasarawa united at the Sharks Stadium.
“GM sir, this news of our going back to Sharks stadium will certainly boost our campaign and let me assure you that we will be among the teams that will play in the Glo premier league next season”, Odinga said.
