No plan to sack Nduka – Plateau Utd

Premier League newcomers, Plateau United, have said they are not considering terminating the contract of their head coach, Ndubuisi Nduka, just three weeks into the new season.
Plateau United through a statement from their club’s spokesman, Monday Goteng, dispelled rumours that they are planning to sack Nduka following an unimpressive start to the season.
“The attention of the management of Plateau United FC of Jos has been drawn to rumours going the rounds about the sack of the club's Technical Adviser, Nduka Ndubuisi.
“The management wishes to state that there is no iota of truth in the rumours circulating around. There has never been a time when the management contemplated sacking Ndubuisi,” the statement read.
Plateau United have also given their support to Nduka to continue in his position without pressure in spite of losing their first two home ties this season by a similar scoreline of 0 – 1 to Dolphin Football Club and Sunshine Stars.
“Also, the management wishes to categorically state that despite losing two home matches, the capabilities of the technical adviser (Nduka) have never been in doubt.
“The technical adviser had proved his mettle when he handled other teams in the past in the Nigeria Premier League. Ndubuisi was able to secure a vital away draw for Plateau United against Ocean Boys in the second week of the league,” said Plateau United.
The club is also confident that they will not be relegated at the end of the season since they are not the basement side in the Premier League log.
“The league is only three weeks old and it is not justifiable to conclude that Plateau United will be relegated or Dolphin will emerge the champions.
“Moreover, Plateau is not occupying the last spot in the 20-team league. For the avoidance of doubt each team in the NPL has a media officer who can furnish all Nigerians with information on each team. The rumour peddlers have tactically by-passed our information unit to purposely mislead the public,” stated the Jos-based side.
