Osun United Football Club Head Coach, Duke Udi, has called on football stakeholders in the State of Osun to rally supports for the team in its quest to avoid relegation.
The Ex-international made this call while featuring on Osun State Broadcasting Corporations (OSBC TV) Saturday Morning Treat, he urged the supporters to forget the past and contribute their quotas in changing the fortune of the club.
“I want to first and foremost apologize for what happened in the past, I’m not happy personally with the whole scenario. Some people jokingly alleged me that I had soft spot for Osun United when I brought Sunshine Stars here last season.
“I told them we were even lucky to have escaped with a lone goal down. I am committed to my job anytime any day, I tender my unreserved apology for those things that fell apart for things to go right,” the disciplinarian soberly submitted.
While reacting to his plans to steer the club out of relegation, he noted; “The time is now for us to reaccess the players commitment, and God’s willing, we would be having at least seven (7) experience players to join us for the second round.
“Fighting relegation isn’t an easy task, management must play its part, supporters must play their part too, all form of unsavory chants towards players has to stop even if we are losing, the blame game has to stop this time around.
“I am optimistic that our next two home games shall be won convincingly. The league is on hold and we have to take advantage of it to do some rigorous exercise, God forbid, Osun United must not be relegated.”
Some callers then charged Udi to buckle up in reorganizing the team and stay focused to come out of the drop zone, noting that for them to be assuaged, Omoluabi Giants must stay safe at the end of the season.
