Kurfi rules Katsina United out of rel­e­ga­tion

Daily Trust - - SPORT - By David Ngobua

The Chair­man of Katsina United, Al­haji Aminu Balele Kurfi has said his team won’t have any­thing to do with rel­e­ga­tion even as they are not where they wanted to be on the ta­ble.

With a to­tal of 43 points from 33 matches, the ‘Chanji boys’ presently oc­cupy the 16th po­si­tion and in danger of go­ing on rel­e­ga­tion.

How­ever, the Se­nior Spe­cial As­sis­tant to Katsina State gov­er­nor on sports said there is no cause for alarm as the man­age­ment of the club is do­ing ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to keep the team in the topflight.

He said the away point which the team picked at Rivers United is a morale booster and when the league re­sumes af­ter the Fed­er­a­tion Cup and CHAN qual­i­fiers break, Katsina United will take the fight against rel­e­ga­tion to the next level.

Kurfi also said the gov­er­nor of the state, Aminu Bello Masari is still giv­ing the club the max­i­mum sup­port to en­sure they are not rel­e­gated.

“It is true we have found our­selves in a pre­car­i­ous po­si­tion but we are not ready to en­ter­tain any fear.

“Our wish was to be some­where in the mid­dle of the ta­ble at this stage of the league but that is not the case. How­ever shall do ev­ery­thing hu­manly pos­si­ble to re­main in the NPFL.

“In­fact His Ex­cel­lency Gov­er­nor Aminu Bello Masari has re­mained com­mit­ted to the club so we have no rea­son to fail. We won’t have any­thing to do with rel­e­ga­tion,” he as­sured.
