FC Taraba to pun­ish keeper Ocheayi

Daily Trust - - SPORT - By David Ngobua, who was in Kano

FC Taraba first choice keeper Richard Ocheayi will be sanc­tioned by his club fol­low­ing the red card he re­ceived in Sun­day’s week six match against Kano Pil­lars.

The goal­keeper whose un­ruly be­hav­iour saw him pick­ing a sec­ond yel­low card in the match which his team went on to lose 3-1 has since shown re­morse.

How­ever, the Tech­ni­cal Ad­viser of FC Taraba Nduka Ndubuisi has said the player will face ap­pro­pri­ate pun­ish­ment from the man­age­ment of the club.

He said the team’s code of con­duct will de­ter­mine the kind of pun­ish­ment that would be meted out to the goal­keeper.

The for­mer Heart­land gaffer also at­trib­uted his team’s loss to the dis­ap­point­ing be­hav­iour of his goal­keeper say­ing if not for the sense­less act, his team would have given Pil­lars a good fight.

“We are all dis­ap­pointed in the be­hav­iour of our goal­keeper. He cost us this match.

“We don’t en­cour­age our play­ers to get in­volved in ques­tion­ing ref­er­ees de­ci­sions.

“There is a code of con­duct on ground and it will serve as a guide in deal­ing with such be­hav­iour. When we go back, ap­pro­pri­ate mea­sures would be taken to ad­dress the is­sue.

“We are all sad be­cause his be­hav­iour cost us to­day’s (Sun­day).
