Daily Trust - - SPORT - By Mike Oboh

The man­age­ment of Spot­light FC of Katsina has placed its tech­ni­cal crew and play­ers on half salary fol­low­ing their dis­mal per­for­mance against Kwara United in Ilorin over the weekend.

The club co­or­di­na­tor, Al­haji Ayuba Umar who dis­closed this yes­ter­day said the 0-5 deficit suf­fered by his team in their week 12 en­counter in Ilorin was scan­dalous hence the de­ci­sion to place the tech­ni­cal crew and play­ers on half pay pend­ing when they im­prove in their per­for­mance.

Ac­cord­ing to him, all the play­ers have been placed on half salary while the Head Coach Ab­dul­lahi Hey­man, in ad­di­tion to the half salary has been served with a warn­ing let­ter.

Umar ex­plained that the man­age­ment of the club is not pleased with the per­for­mance of the play­ers es­pe­cially in the match against Kwara United.

He said the coaches and play­ers are highly mo­ti­vated to per­form as their salaries and other ben­e­fits are paid promptly.

“No player or a coach in our team is owed a kobo. We even pay their salary April salary be­fore left Katsina just to mo­ti­vate them yet they are not ready to up their game,” Umar lamented.

The co­or­di­na­tor, how­ever, urged the play­ers and the tech­ni­cal crew to do ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to can­cel the goal deficit against Kogi United in their to­mor­row home game in Katsina or face more pun­ish­ment as the man­age­ment will not tol­er­ate un­pro­duc­tively in the team.
