Warri Wolves have swiftly moved to deny accusations that the team has any axe to grind with Nasarawa United, following their earlier announced intention to miss their last day game.
In a short release circulated in the media, the team wrote:
- The Management of Warri Wolves wishes to clarify their stand on the press release on the match between Giwa FC and Nasarawa United and state clearly that the Club has no rift with the Lafia based Club.
- Rather what it meant is that the Club will not play until the League Management Company resolves all pending issues affecting the League before the final match.
The clarification according to the Media Manager of Warri Wolves, Moses Etu became necessary in view of the tension it has generated.
Etu said they hold Nasarawa United in high esteem and will not do anything to spoil the relationship that has been existing between them over the years, hence, the need for all to understand that Warri Wolves is only interested in League Management Company resolving all issues pending before the last match.
- It is essential we clarify our stand on the press release which has generated a lot of tension. We are only saying that all issues affecting the League including the match between Giwa FC and Nasarawa United be resolved before the final day.
- We did not mean to embarrass anybody rather what we are saying is that things should be done in the right way before the final match to enable people know where they belong. said Etu.
The LMC had since moved all final day ties from Sunday November 9, to Sunday November 16, so that all outstanding issues can be settled.
