Ahead of its CAF Confederations Cup cracker against USM Algiers in Lagos today, Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions Plateau United has been buoyed by the return of its talismen Raphael Ayagwa, Daniel Itodo amongst others.
The other four payers who are making a heart-warming return to the side include Ogene Elijah, Okiemute Odah and Sunday Ngbede.
While Itodo made his return against Yobe Star in the mid-week NPFL game in Damaturu, Ayagwa and others would be making it into the team’s line-up, to make up its strongest squad in recent times and give the technical crew more than a few options, LEADERSHIP Weekend Sport understands.
In another development, the club’s trashed news making the round about an on-going crisis in the club.
In a statement by the club through its media officer, Albert Dakup and made available to us, he described the news as “not only baseless, unfounded and fictitious, but a calculated attempt by mischief makers to distract the team” in the build-up to its play-off this weekend.
According to Dakup, as much as the management of the team and the state government were unhappy, owing to the club’s back-to-back defeat in the NPFL, it has never considered sacking Coach Kennedy Boboye and his technical crew.
He, however, conceded that, upon the team’s return from Nnewi where they recorded their heaviest defeat against FC IfeanyiUbah, a meeting was held and all issues relating to the team’s poor performance were sorted out, with a view to charting an immediate return to winning ways.
“I urge journalists to cross-check their facts before going to press, in order not to feed the public with falsehood.
“The club’s doors are open at any time to journalists who wish to find out information on the club activities, so as to feed the public with correct, unbiased report,” Dakup wrote, while calling on the “great fans of Lagos and the club to come out en masse and support us as we confront USM Algiers.”
