Eguavoen rips People's Elephant



Enyimba head coach, Austin Eguavoen has blamed his players for their lack of discipline in their 0-1 loss to 3SC in Ibadan on Saturday.

He pointed out the shabby wall of defence before Enyimba conceded from Mutiu Adegoke's late free kick as an example of his team's lack of indiscipline in the game.

"The boys showed a total lack of discipline in this game. We spoke about this before the game and even at the break.

"Our wall, for instance, was not properly set up. Instead of forming a four or five-man wall, the boys just put up a two-man wall which gave Mutiu (Adegoke) the chance to pick where to shoot to. We have ourselves to blame for this loss," he said.

The former Nigeria Under23 head coach also believes that his team took their foot off the pedal.

"We took our eyes off the ball and didn't press our opponents well enough to get a result. Even after conceding that goal the boys still didn't do enough. It's a total lack of discipline," lamented Eguavoen.

Enyimba are now third in the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) standings with 31 points and play hosts to 3SC in their next game in Aba.
