Cooreman brands Wolves' stars flops

Belgian coach, Maurice Cooreman, has angrily tore into his players for failing to put up a fight against South African club, Black Leopards last weekend.

Warri Wolves were bundled out of the Caf Confederation Cup on away goals' rule following a 0-2 loss in the second leg against the PSL team.

Cooreman's men had won the first leg in Warri 3-1 in April before they lost in the reverse match.

The Warri Wolves' manager is now livid that his players did not turn up against the Polokwane-based team in the reverse fixture.

"It was a disgraceful performance from my players. We won the first leg 3-1 and we just needed to play well and score at least a goal but my players didn't do that," said Cooreman to

"Some of our players are in the national team and this result is just unacceptable. The national team players (in the Wolves' team) disappointed me the most, but that is football."

The former Kaduna United manager now wants his team to focus on the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) and salvage their season by fighting to finish among the top three.

"Now we have to go back and work hard and make sure we finish in the top three. That's the only way we can win a place back to continental club football," a disappointed Cooreman remarked.

Warri Wolves are in 14th position in the Premier League standings on 30 points from 22 games and are 13 points behind leaders, Enugu Rangers.
