16 face axe at Ocean Boys



Nigeria Premier League (NPL) club, Ocean Boys will sack 16 players before the commencement of the second round of the 2011/2012 season.

Chief coach of the club, Samson Unuanel explained that the decision is being taken to ‘increase productivity’ and see that the club achieve their objectives in the second half of the season.

“We need to increase productivity in the club. I can tell you that the players who will be sacked are not giving us their best. So there is a need to beef up as we prepare for the second half of the season,” Unuanel told SuperSport.com.

Ocean Boys have been in dire financial straits and Unuanel explained that absence of financial motivation was responsible for most of their underwhelming performances in the first round of the campaign.

“The sponsors will need to do more because the boys have not been motivated as well as they should. We have to do a lot of reshuffling because about 16 players we registered for the new season are on their way out of the club,” Unuanel said.

Ocean Boys sacked 17 players at the end of the 2012/2011 season.
