Handsworth Sack Players


This is not the best time for Handsworth Football Club of Sango-Otta, Ogun State, as 12 players have been sacked for gross misconduct.

Team Manager of the club, Tajudeen Olasunkanmi, told GSG that the sacked players have committed various offences in the last few months which affected the progress of the club.

“The management has decided to sack the players for lack of commitment to the club again, indiscipline or lateness to training session. For now, we want to restructure the club and bring fresh legs to fortify the team,” he said.

Olasunkanmi said he has begun intensive search for fresh legs to replace the sacked players, disclosing that the club will not engage in any football competition or friendly match until everything is put in place.

“That is the challenges the club is facing now. We purposely suspended the training session to allow the coaching crew to scout for new players before we resume in September. I am not worried about the sacked players because the future of the club is bright,” he said.

Speaking on behalf of the sacked players, Musa Muftau, appealed to the management to rescind its decision, saying that the players should be given a second chance.

Some of the sacked players are Akinrinsoye Tayo, Okongbo Ndidi, Akinkunmi Yemi, Simon Kingsley, Ayodele Lanre, Aderogba Abiodun, Oyebola David.

Others are Makinde Lekan, Anucha Ifeanyi, Sunday Abraham, Ajakula Tayo and Ephraim Joshua.
