The Technical Adviser of Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC), Fatai Amoo has explained that “the so called big players” were responsible for 3SC’s relegation from the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL).
Shooting Stars finished 17th on the NPFL table to claim the last relegation spot with 50 points as they lost away at Niger Tornadoes in the last game of the season.
Speaking to reporters, Amoo said: “It was a very poor season for us but we have to take the positives and think of the future,”
“They can’t fight because they’ve already fought themselves by embarking on a stupid strike. And when you don’t train, what you have is what you can give.”
“And now they have seen the result of what they have caused. The so-called old players in the team have decided to take the team to relegation,”
The Oluyole Warriors have won the Nigerian Premier League five times but have failed to work their way back among Nigeria’s football elites in recent years.
Amoo continued: “I don’t think maladministration was responsible for Shooting Stars’ relegation, but the management should look into the area of players playing in the last three to four seasons,”
“And I think the so called big players have decided to take the team to relegation.”
