Pinnick Fumes At Wolves’ Poor Form

With no margin for error, Kano Pillars humiliated Warri Wolves by four-nil in Kano on Sunday to remain top of the Premier League after last weekend’s round of matches.
But the defeat was not pleasing to Delta State Sports Commission chairman, Amaju Pinnick, who also plays the role of chairman of Warri Wolves. understands that Pinnick burst into a fit of anger at the performance of the club and even went as far as threatening the team with disbandment following the poor outing in Kano at the weekend.
However, a club official who spoke to disclosed that the players and coaches were terrified with the outburst of the Delta State Sports Commission boss.
The official said the outing of the team in last Sunday’s Premier League match was unimpressive.
“Sincerely the game against Kano Pillars was bad. Our team had the ball all the time but could not do anything and every time Kano Pillars came to our goal area, they kept scoring and at some point, we were afraid that our team might consider more than four goals. Our boss was very angry and he did not hide it at all. He even threatened disbandment though I think he was angry that’s why he went to that extent,” the official revealed.
But it was added that Pinnick’s anger over the team’s performances had built up over a week ago when Warri Wolves could only muster a 2 – 1 victory over CAPS United of Zimbabwe in the first leg, third round of the CAF Champions League at the Warri City Stadium.
As if that was not enough, Lawrence Akpokona’s men followed up with another stuttering outing in a rescheduled Premier League game in Warri against Gateway Football Club.
Though Wolves won 2 – 1, the team from Abeokuta left the Warri City Stadium unhappy with the officiating after one of it’s goals was cancelled by the centre referee.
