Management of Sunshine Queens of Akure has attributed their exit to the poor handling of the match officials to their early and sudden exit of the Akure based outfit.
Speaking with brila.net on Monday, one of the officials of Ondo state outfit who prefers anonymity said:
“Its evident that few football followers admire and cherish good football artistry, many have allowed sentiments and personal gains to kill the joy that ought to be derived from football matches”
Over the years *Sunshine Queens* has produced quality players many in Europe and some representing Nigeria and other African countries.
What we are known for players Nurturing to stardom, unlike other Women Elite teams who believe in established players to get an instant result.
The match against FC Robo would have shocked many who were not at the Oshogbo township stadium
Completely, the match officials were against Sunshine Queens for reasons best known to them. Today, it was another not too good officiating.
It’s not part of us to criticize match officials especially when we lose because we know there are moments we’ll lose to get a better result next time. What transpired in Enugu today never reflected the efforts of Sunshine Queens FC.
“If the powers that be are out to shut us out at all cost for reasons we do not know there is little we can do but we believe *posterity will judge us all”
Sunshine Queens players gave a good fight, searched for goals, but were tactically restricted by match officials and allowed their errors to lead to penalty kicks against us.
“We are a determined side and we won’t ever allow distractions. For those who genuinely believe in Us, we won’t disappoint you”
“And to those who believe in bringing us down…God will surely fight for us.” He lamented.
