The technical crew of Kwara United Football Club, led by Coach Kabir Sulaiman Dogo, has been issued a stern ultimatum to secure victories in the next three matches or face disciplinary actions.
This decision comes in response to the club’s recent string of poor performances, with the team managing a goalless draw against North Central rivals, Niger Tornadoes, marking the fourth home draw out of seven matches played in Ilorin.
In a letter titled ‘Notification of Three Matches Ultimatum,’ dated Monday, December 18th, 2023, and signed by Club Secretary Wale Obalola, the entire technical crew, including Assistant Coach Abdulkadir Abolaji, Assistant Coach Olaniyi Mukaila, and Goalkeeper Trainer Coach Alao Olaniyi Adeyemi, has been charged with finding solutions to the team’s struggles.
“The management of Kwara United Football Club wishes to inform you that the entire technical crew headed by you has been given three (3) matches ultimatum to arrest the current and unacceptable performance(s) of the team,” the letter stated.
Expressing dissatisfaction with the team’s position in the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) 2023/2024 season, the management highlighted the team’s recent poor results, including amassing only two points from the last three matches without scoring a goal.
Notably, the team has drawn four out of seven home matches, a performance deemed unacceptable by the club management.
The technical crew is now tasked with securing victories in the next three matches, starting with the Matchday 15 home game against Plateau United on Thursday, December 21, 2023, followed by the Matchday 16 away match against Kano Pillars on Thursday, December 28, 2023, and concluding with the Matchday 17 home game against Lobi Stars FC.
The management emphasized that this action is essential to re-energize the players, restore confidence, and steer the team back on the path to success.
The letter concluded with an appeal to the team’s supporters, fans, and stakeholders to continue their unwavering support, fostering an environment conducive to progress and competitive excellence in the top-flight league.
