I’ll Reveal Truth Behind My Sack - Ogbeide

The last may not have been heard of the dismissal of Solomon Ogbeide as head coach of Warri Wolves, as he has vowed to tell his own side of the story leading to the whole saga.
According to the former Lobi Stars’ coach, he does not want to join issues for now with officials of his former club after he was shown the exit door last week and replaced by Lawrence Akpokona.
Ogbeide, who is in the running for two coaching jobs at newly-promoted Kwara United and Lobi Stars, was reportedly relieved of his duty for demanding an increase in his wage. He was sacked alongside his assistant, Napoleon Aluma.
Ogbeide was relieved of his job for unsatisfactory performance in the past season, according to the management of Warri Wolves.
“This is not the right time to speak about it,” said Ogbeide of his shock dismissal at Warri Wolves. “But when the time comes I will tell the whole world what really happened.”
Ogbeide was apparently unhappy with the comments of Warri Wolves’ officials that flooded the media in the wake of his sack.
It was apparent from the way Ogbeide spoke that some of the allegations made against him he would contest, but instead he decided to keep his cool to fight another day.
“Apart from the way they treated me, I am not happy with the way they have been telling the press that I did this and did that. Well that is their own version of the whole story. Like I said, I will tell my own when the time is proper,” he remarked.
However, our correspondent decided to put Ogbeide on the spot by asking him to assess his stay with Warri Wolves, and the former Bendel Insurance handler was more than happy to state that he performed well with the side in the past season.
He explained that for Warri Wolves to have finished in fourth place ahead of some illustrious Premier League sides speaks volume of his competence.
Ogbeide added that at some stage in the 2008/2009 campaign that Wolves was competing for the title until it became a two-team race between Bayelsa United and Heartland Football Club at the closing stages of the season.
“I believe that Warri Wolves did very well last season when I was in charge. I made sure that we challenged for the title and unfortunately we finished in fourth position and missed out on the continent. But it was a good performance for a side that were just promoted to the Premier League because they finished ahead of some big clubs,” he said.
