The
management of Lagos based Ikorodu United have come out to deny a rumour making
rounds over the sack of their coach.
Most
media houses in the country, especially the electronic media revealed early on Monday
morning that Benson Edema, the assistant coach of the club had been sacked
after their home loss to Rivers United on Sunday in the league.
However,
Media Officer of the club, Babatunde Ayoola in a statement on Monday afternoon
revealed that it was not true.
“The
Management and Board of Directors of Ikorodu United Football Club is using this
medium to disassociate itself from the false rumour from a section of the press
that our Assistant Coach, Mr Edema Benson has being sacked,” the statement
read.
“Edema
Benson, who was in interim capacity as the Chief Coach before the appointment
of Sam Okpodu is still an integral part of Ikorodu United Football Club as the
Assistant Coach.
“We
plead with our Esteemed Press Men and Ladies to ensure that their platforms
does not associate itself from such fallacy,” the statement said.
Ikorodu
United have acquired for themselves the reputation of whipping boys of the
league having lost twice and drawn once at home in the nine week old league.
