Whoever is coaching Lobi stars of Makurdi, Benue state must get up and instil discipline into these young players

Today’s match between Lobi and Ifeanyi stars was a display of the high level of indiscipline ranging from unprofessional protest and unprofessional delay tactics by Lobi stars that may forever keep them unattractive before foreign clubs.

The Lobi goalkeeper could leave his area and walk to talk to the referee and almost slap him. At a point, he would hold the ball and thereafter, sit on it, as if that is not enough, he pulled his soccer shoes and soccer hand glove, go and look for rag and begin to clean them one after the other, honestly, I have never seen this kind of delay tactics in my life.

Then, there is this number 14 whose name I don’t even know when he was called out for substitution, he delayed and was pretending to be running meanwhile, he was not moving an inch forward out of the field.

When I looked at him, I saw a young face whose dream could be to play for Chelsea or Manchester united FC.

With these unprofessional attitudes, I doubt who would even think of buying them.

Then, you see Benue football fans hailing them without knowing the implications these players are causing themselves before the international scene.

These Lobi players forget that for every local match such as the one they played today, there are foreign observers watching keenly to pick a good player to the international scene.

I have also been informed reliably that Lobi stars are only winners at home hence they find it extremely difficult to even beg for draw game in away matches.

Any club that wins only at home is not worthy of any celebration, thus should not expect the government to continually waste the tax payers money on their sponsorships and other sundry expenses.

The Lobi star players and their coach must strive to meet up and attract international engagement in other to create a vacancy for the upcoming soccer talents.
