Head coach of the Nigeria Professional Football League Club Plateau United, Abdu Maikaba, has explained the reasons behind his team’s poor performance against MFM FC.
Maikaba watched his side go down 3-1 to the Olukoya Boys at Agege Stadium on Wednesday.
The result left the Peace Boys 10th on the log and squashed any hope of mounting late challenge for CAF Confederation Cup tickets.
Reacting to the defeat, Maikaba said fixtures congestion is affecting his side and he had prosecuted the game without 10 of his regular players.
He pointed out that his side is paying for LMC’s decisions to make the team play twice a week.
“The truth is that the matches are getting too many for the players.” He lamented.
“I know what LMC is aiming to do, to finish the league but they should not forget that these players could get injured and it could also end their career.
“I came here without 10 of my regular players and with the results, we lost, nobody will say we lost some key players, five of the players that played today are making their debut, though it’s difficult I’m satisfied with how they played and I believed we have achieved something,” he said.
