The Management of the Plateau United FC of Jos has blamed the failure of the club to claim its title in the just concluded 2020/2021 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), on players’ indiscipline, negligence and inadequate funding.
A statement issued on Sunday by Mr. Albert Dakup, the Club’s Media Officer, quoted the General Manager of the club, Mr. Pius Henwan, as stating this while addressing the players and technical crew of the team on Saturday, in Jos.
Advocate. ng gathered that the Lalong boys were unable to win the tournament nor pick the continental ticket.
The statement said that the manager was, however, optimistic that the club would perform excellently next season, commending some of the players for outstanding performance, while threatening to sack the lazy ones.
”It’s quite unfortunate that some of you failed to live up to expectation due to indiscipline, negligence and nonchalant attitude, to the cause of the team.
“Management will not hesitate to drop such players, as there will be no room for a repeat of that next season,” Hewan said.
The statement further assured Plateau residents and the club’s teeming supporters that it would do better in the next season, as Hewan promised to recruit more players to fortify the team for better performance.
The manager thanked Gov. Simon Lalong for his support to the team so far and called for more, to enable it to produce good results.
Meanwhile, the club, which had proceeded on a one-month recess, is to resume pre-season training at the end of August. (NAN)
