Head coach of newly awarded Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) winners Lobi Stars, Solomon Ogbeide has stated that his side are worthy winners.
According to the former Warri Wolves gaffer, his team didn’t lobby for the title after being declared winners with 14 games remaining.
“We would have loved to play till the very end if it not for the exigency of time and logistics which accounted for the call to end the league,” he began in a chat with Footballlive.ng.
“That doesn’t take away the fact that we deserve to be crowned champions. I have read many insinuations from people that we aren’t worthy of the honour.”
“The accusations that we lobbied for the trophy doesn’t look fair on us. We clearly worked for the title and got what we deserved,” he added.
Lobi Stars will represent Nigeria at the 2019 CAF Champions League.
