Head Coach of Sporting Lagos, Paul Offor has expressed his disappointment with the club’s fans following their unsportsmanlike attitude in their 1-1 draw against Heartland on Sunday.
The Noisy Lagosians rallied late to share spoils with the Naze Millionaires, thanks to Jonathan Alukwu’s last minute goal that canceled out an own goal.
Offor emphasized the need for fans to stay loyal and supportive to their club irrespective of outcome from the match.
“We are not happy about the result but one thing I know is nobody wants to win this game more than the players. I appreciate their efforts. We have to keep our heads high and get ready for the next game against Sunshine Stars,” he started.
“We are clamouring for a league where teams can go away and pick points and when teams come to your home and pick points. We want to create a free and fair league where anybody can pick points.
“They came here and picked a point, we too should be ready to go away and pick points. That is the league we are clamouring for but unfortunately, it seems we are not ready.”
“We want this league to be competitive. It happened here today, tomorrow it can be against Remo or Akwa.
“Today it’s against Sporting Lagos. The fans should appreciate the players and what the league is trying to do, we are not ready for growth if the fans turn against the players and coaches when the result is not going in your favour.”
Sporting Lagos will next take on Shooting Stars in Ibadan on Sunday.
