GOLDEN Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke wielded the big stick as four players were dropped from the team as part of the building process.

The four players who were shown the exit door of the Golden Eaglets’ CJ Planet International Hotel camp in Abuja are: Kingsley Michael, Okonkwo Orji, Chibuzor Ibekwe and Paul Obasi.

The decision to drop the affected players came after repeated warnings against poor performance and conduct by his fledging players.

Amunike therefore advised the remaining players to pull their weight since
no bad conduct would be tolerated both on and off the field of play.

“I really want to thank all of you for what you have done so far but the truth of the matter is that some of you are not doing enough and as a matter of fact, we won’t also condone indiscipline on the part of anybody,” said Amuneke.

He said he was miffed with the conduct of some of the players following the team’s relative success at the recently concluded WAFU B Tournament in Togo and categorically told the players that no individual player is bigger than the team or the country.

“Without discipline, we can’t get to anywhere and achieve anything. As such, we want you to remain focused and disciplined,” he maintained.
