Tornadoes issue sack order



The management of NNL side, Niger Tornadoes has issued a strike and be sacked order on the players for the coming 2012/2013 league season.

Supersport.com learnt the measure is taken to prevent recurrence of the strike that dogged the team's path in the out gone season.

Tornadoes' boss, Abdullahi Abdul Paiko said the club will not tolerate any act of indiscipline from their players as such act will lead to outright expulsion.

"We're going to give the players opportunity to prove themselves on the field and we would also ensure their entitlements are not delayed so that they can put in their best.

"But anyone who instigates other players won't be allowed to stay in our camp for another 48 hours.

"We have confidence in the technical adviser, Godwin Uwua and he has been doing a good job to make sure the players remain one united family.

"We're giving him the necessary support to build a solid team that will be the darling of every Nigerian.

"Most of our players are young and are eager to prove themselves when the league commences.

"We're confident they will do everything possible to ensure the club return to the Premier League," he said.

Paiko said there will be a special workshop for the side supporters club in the 25 local government area of the state aimed at keeping them abreast with the best practices of supporting a club.
