The management of Abubakar Bukola Saraki (ABS), FC has sacked six players and placed 3 on probation over lack of productivity that has hampered the team’s chances of clinching the Nigerian Premier League title.
The team’s Director of Football, Alloy Chukwuemeka, told newsmen in Ilorin on Sunday that the club arrived at the decision to drop the players after a meeting at the club’s secretariat on Saturday, to access the team’s productivity.
According to Chukwuemeka, the contribution of the six players to the team’s aspiration is not encouraging hence the need to replace them with others.
“We had told the players from the beginning that only the good ones among them with us. We are very ambitious and we want to achieve good results, so we will not tolerate anyone not adding to our value. This is a young team that we are building for the future, the process starts now and the foundation must be solid” he said.
Chukwuemeka, who also doubles as the Secretary of the Club Owners, explained that the technical crew has requested for immediate replacement for the six released players.
“We are going to recruit another six to replace the dropped players. Screening for these new set of players will commence on Monday to Wednesday” Chukwuemeka added.
Meanwhile, the team has since gone on break to regroup by Friday, April 28 for preparations for the second stanza of the league and the final of the state Federation Cup against Kwara United.
