The Management of Saki United FC has cried out for help from government and other corporate bodies saying it may not honour its next match In the ongoing AITEO Cup.
Saki United which handed out a resounding 2-0 defeat to hard-fighting Sokoto Professionals on Tuesday in Minna, Niger State, disclosed that it didn’t receive any assistance from government quarters to prosecute its match against Sokoto probably because of bureaucratic bottle-neck.
Speaking with Ibadan Football Association (IFA) Media, on WhatsApp call, the Assistant Coach of the team, Badmos Fesojaye disclosed that it was well- meaning individuals that contributed money for the team to travel to Minna for its first match.
The Saki United FC thanked the chairman of Ibadan Football Association (IFA) Barr. Rotimi Alli for the moral and financial assistance given to the state AITEO CUP representatives in the build-up to the Championship.
The club appealed to the soccer loving Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde to assist the team to enable it travel to Sokoto for its next match against Katsina United.
Badmos, who promised to not let down the state and IFA said the club was in high spirits after Tuesday’s victory and was conscious of the fact that it was representing all IFA League teams and as such would go for another victory in its next match.
It is worthy of mention that Saki United finished second behind 3SC in the 2021/22 IFA League but edged out the 3SC, in the semi – final of the State AITEO CUP Competition by 5-4 penalties.
Saki United came back from 0-2 to level up 2-2 in a pulsating encounter and then won the ensuing penalty shoot out.
