As Team Backs Gali Falke
The acting General Manager of Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan, Dimeji Lawal, believed that Saturday’s loss to Bendel Insurance should ginger the team to get better in subsequent matches.
The Ibadan soccer lords had the Matchday two clash under control for most part of the encounter, but were unable to hit the target for their efforts.
Addressing the players before their departure from Benin on Sunday morning, Kabongo as the ex International is popularly known, hailed the players for fighting like Warriors during the match.
“Guys, I want to appreciate you for putting up a good performance yesterday (Saturday). You really represented us very well and I must commend you, despite the loss.
“Like the coach said. All the mistakes noted in the encounter will be corrected before the next match, so let’s put our heads up and not be discouraged by the result of this match”, added the general manager, who also doubles as the club’s team manager.
Meanwhile, the ex Super Eagles’ winger said the entire team is solidly behind right back, Gali Falke, who has come under criticism from some quarters, after he umistakenly scored an own goal.
“You have been a very committed and disciplined player, very trust worthy. Don’t be deterred by whatever anybody says. For us as a team, we are behind you”, the ex Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles’ player told the right back.
