In a remarkable turn of events, Super Eagles defender Shehu Abdullahi has extended a sincere apology to the dedicated fans of Anorthosis, following their unexpected 3-0 home loss to Apoel Nicosia in the Cypriot top-flight football league this Wednesday. The conclusion of this match marked the end of Anorthosis’ hitherto unbeaten streak in the league after an impressive 17-game run, causing the team to slip to second place with 36 points, merely one point behind the league leaders AEK Larnaca.
Abdullahi, grappling with the outcome, conveyed his sentiments and shared his unwavering belief in the team’s ability to recover from this setback. In a message delivered via his official Twitter account, he remarked, “Matchday Result: Anorthosisfc 0-3 APOEL Nicosia. We are disappointed, not the result we wanted. First defeat of the season, we are not happy. Dear Anorthosis fans, we appreciate your support. This is the time to stay United, we’ll bounce back. Lessons learnt!”
The defeat has undoubtedly left both players and fans disheartened, but Abdullahi’s acknowledgment of the team’s discontent and his assurance of a resilient comeback have resonated positively. As Anorthosis navigates through this unanticipated hurdle, the fans remain a pivotal source of encouragement, embodying the unity and determination that characterize the spirit of the team.
