“I had two injury situations. We had to replace Ganiyu because of injury afterwards Evans also sustained injury because the pitch is not good. I don’t understand how this pitch can be approved for league match,” he told Eli Kondoh in the post match interview.
“Sometimes when we lose we try to find excuse but I tell you this pitch doesn’t meet any of the conditions to play a league match on,” he added.
