Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions, Plateau United FC of Jos, has sacked 11 players ahead of the new season.
This was contained in a statement by the club’s media officer, Albert Dakup.
He explained that the players were sacked for low productivity, age and indiscipline.
Dakup gave the names of the affected players as Chima Ndukwu, Okoro Obasi, Daddy Francis, Daddy Morris, Stanley Okoro, Ayo Segun, Anayo Ogbonna, Umar Umara, John Kim, Longji Obadiah and Olowo Emmanuel.
“The decision to drop the players was necessitated by the fact that the team will be competing on three fronts next season, including the CAF Champions League.
“As such serious-minded players with international exposure will be engaged to fortify the team.
“Following the abysmal outing of Nigerian clubs in the continent, Plateau United will acquire the services of experienced, committed and dedicated players in order to put up a decent outing,” the statement read.
