Relegation bound, Shooting Stars Football Club will no longer be tutored by its Technical Adviser, Fatai Amao, according to the Management of the team.
Amao blames the Management for the relegation, noting that its poor welfare policies led the players to embark on strike at a critical period last season.
In a statement made available to Morning Mail on Monday, the Management equally said that it was reviewing the status of all the remaining technical crew members.
A decision will soon be made on them, the Management added.
The statement, issued in Ibadan by the club’s Media Officer, Jubril Arowolo, confirmed that Amao would not be leading the team in the professional league campaign next season.
It added that the team would “forever be grateful for the former Technical Adviser’s commitment and input.”
Jubril explained that the management came to the conclusion after reviewing the performance of the team in the Nigerian Premier League last season, adding that the positions of other technical crew members are also under review.
“The management acknowledged the effort of Mr Fatai Amoo to inspire the team during the failed season. We wish Mr. Amao success in his future endeavours as we will not forget his positive impact on the team,” Jubril said.
Amoo had on the last day of the 2017 season blamed the team’s relegation on the management’s poor players’ welfare scheme.
“It was unfortunate that we could not make it at the end of the day,” Completesportsnigeria.com quoted him as saying.
He added: “The players decided to boycott training and it’s what you have that you will give.
“The players did not have three sessions of training due to the strike. And by the time we got to Lokoja, the players were already fatigued. For me, the club allowed this to happen. This was what they also did last year.
“So it has happened and we have to face it, we have to go back and strategise to know where we have not done the right thing.”
