Return Sunshine Stars to Continental Football, Ondo Govt Charges New Technical Adviser at Unveiling
Ondo State Government has mandated Sunshine Stars Technical Crew and management qualify the team for continental football at the end of the new 2018/2019 football season.
Commissioner for Youth Development and Sports, Mr. Saka Yusuf Ogunleye made the call today after a new Sunshine Stars Technical Crew led by Kabir Dogo Suleiman was introduced to him.
The Commissioner said only results could justify the huge investment the government was making on the team and meet supporters yearnings.
“We do not expect anything short of a run of good
results throughout the season.
This is the only way the team can be on top of the log at end of the season.
Sunshine Stars need to rediscover the form that took them to continental football a few years ago. Being the the only team being funded by government in the South West, the team has to do well.”
According to him, the team had to be reorganised for better productivity.
“The position of the team at end of last season left
much to be desired. The reorganisation that took place was a child of necessity
due to the teams dismal performance in the last two seasons.
The way Sunshine Stars was performing needed drastic measures.
It was populated with aged players, too many coaches and indiscipline.
The choice of Coach Dogo Suleiman by the management is a welcome development.
He has a track record of achievements. We look forward to him replicating such here.
I am advising both the coaching crew and management to work together as division among you could derail your dreams”
Mr. Ogunleye assured that the government was available to support the team in it’s desire to achieve its goals.
Earlier, Chairman Sunshine Stars football Club, Mr.
Tajudeen Akinyemi had said Mr. Dogo had been hired to head the technical crew
of Sunshine Stars.
He added that the new coach had tutored Nasarawa United for five years, during which they qualified to hoist Nigeria’s flag in continental competitions.
