Sharks coach slams players

Head coach/technical adviser of Sharks FC, Gbenga Ogunbote does not believe the players at his disposal are good enough “to compete in the” league.

Sharks have failed to score a goal in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) in the last 616 minutes and the Blue Angels unsurprisingly prop up the basement of the 20-team NPFL log and Ogunbote has astonishingly confessed that the players at his disposal may struggle to make the cut.

“I don’t have a perfect team. I don’t have a team that can compete in the tournament. We are just trying to make do with the situation but be that as it may, we will do all within our power to get it right,” Ogunbote said.

Meanwhile, Rivers State sports commissioner, Fred Igwe has revealed that the club will be shopping for new players in the coming days.

Sharks are bottom of the 2012/13 NPFL with five points from seven matches.
