United Sports Club suffered a defeat at the hands of Sporting Clube de Goa in a round 16 I-League match on Saturday, thanks to a solitary first half striker by Rojen Singh (4') who sealed three points for the home side.
The coach of the Purple Brigade, Eelco Schattorie, stated that he has nothing more to offer owing to the financial crisis at the club and revealed that there is a "big chance" of him resigning.
"There is a big chance that I'm going to resign from this club because my tools or my equipment to motivate the team is finished. There is nothing more that I can do. That's to do with the situation of the club," he said.
"If you see the game again and the last three-to-four games as well, we have not seen the motivation especially when we get behind in the first 10-or-15 minutes. Then the need of pressure starts falling on us and then we start playing. We outplayed Sporting Clube de Goa without having any big chances, but we completely dominated. They had to retreat," he continued.
"If I had the news today or yesterday that we get a sponsor that would have motivated the players. We would have won this game. We would have won the last few games and we would have been on top. We threw away whatever I built all year in just three-to-four games."
Ranti Martins was substituted by Schattorie in the 60th minute and the 41-year-old stated that the Nigerian misses a strike partner.
