• The Big Elephants shift focus to NPFL
The management of Wikki Tourists has passed a vote of confidence on the coach Mohammed Baba Ganaru-led technical crew despite the team’s exit from the CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday.
The Big Elephants were eliminated from the championship by Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces (RSLAF) on 2-1 aggregate.
The management and technical crew met on Monday at an emergency meeting to review the team’s participation in the competition.
The club’s media officer, Nasiru Kobi revealed to SportingLife that the board accepted the team’s early exit as an act of God while urging the technical crew to shift focus to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
“After an emergency meeting of management and technical crew today (Monday), the management after listening to the technical crew accepted what happened as an act of God. Our exit has been destined by God and wants our fans to see it that way too.
“The management passed a vote of confidence on the technical crew and urged them to focus on the NPFL and not be distracted with what happened. The management wants a big impact in the league and the technical crew has promised to do their best. The management thanks the state governor for the support,” Kobi told SportingLife.
