Yobe Desert Stars’ Abubakar Ago has stressed that the management of the club is not satisfied with the present position of the team in the league table.
He said he expects the technical crew to buckle up and ensure that they complement the good gesture of the state government with impressive results.
The retired Fifa referee pointed out that the state government under the stewardship of Governor, Ibrahim Geidam has taken the welfare of the team seriously and that they have no business flirting with the relegation zone at all.
“If I have to be frank with you, we do not have any business with the relegation zone at all because the state government of Governor Ibrahim Geidam has been very forthright with the welfare of the team,” Ago told Goal.
“We do not owe the players match bonuses and their salaries are paid as and when due. It is the reason why we are pained at the predicament of the team. We are not asking for too much from the players and the coaches.
“We said because we are still new to the league that we are only seeking to remain in the premier league this season and try to consolidate on it next season. We want a change of attitude on the part of the players and the technical crew.”
Yobe Stars are 19th in the league table with 28 points from 24 games and they will square up against fellow basement side, Heartland in their first game after the league season is restarted.
