Ondo Govt. Gives Reasons For Dissolution Of Sunshine Stars
The state government ordered the dissolution of the management, as well as the sacking of the technical crew following a poor season
The Ondo State Government says its decision to overhaul Sunshine Stars was due to it poor outing in the out-gone 2017/18 Nigeria Professional Football League season.
The Owena Whales finished in the 18th spot with 28 points despite a three-point deduction but escaped relegation following the abrupt ending of the Nigeria topflight season after 24 games.
And state’s Commissioner for Sports and Youth Development Saka Yusuf-Ogunleye said that the sacking of team’s management was at the approval of governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.
“It has become necessary to dissolve the technical crew, technical pool staff and players of the Sunshine Stars Football Club of Akure,” the commissioner told media.
“It is on record that the team managed to escape relegation last season and ended up in the 18th position out of the 20 teams that participated at the just-concluded football season.
