The Flying Antelopes’ woes were compounded by the Sky Blue Stars their gaffer has sympathised with his counterpart

Remo Stars coach, Fatai Osho expresses concern with the situation of Enugu Ranger‘s Imama Amapakabo.

Rangers’ struggles continued in the Nigeria Professional Football League as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by the Sky Blue Stars.

The result sees the Nigerian champions lead the log from behind after 13 topflight matches.

And the former Crown FC handler has sympathised with his counterpart stating psychological problems as his team’s undoing.

“Yes definitely I feel for coach Imama Amapakabo, anybody that has followed Nigerian football in the last three years will consent that Imama has real quality,” Osho told Goal.

“It’s unfortunate that this is happening to him. There’s an obvious psychological problem in that team, I was very close to the line when Remo Stars played against Enugu Rangers on Wednesday and I saw it in those players that they didn’t play to their potential because of pressure coming from different sources.

“I know Rangers are much better than what we saw. I played against them last season in the Federation Cup, even though I won, the fight they gave was much better than what we saw on Wednesday.

“You can see that we were more dominant and looked more confident. It’s really unfortunate that this is happening. Coach Imama is intelligent, smart and has done a lot in Nigeria the last year and someone like that should not just go down.

“I know that it’s just a phase and he will come back strong, but I pray that their management gives him some time to get his team back. Rangers aren’t lacking tactical problems, I see more of a psychological problem in that team.”
