The AIT Footballer of the Year Awards has in its own little way thrown up a lot of small and big issues concerning football and how it should be appreciated. Some of the issues were raised during the event last Sunday in Abuja and today Sunshine Stars FC top executive, Mike Idoko has added to the issues. HeÂ believes, the award for Team of the Year, should have gone to his former club Warri Wolves FC of Delta State.
Idoko, who was the teamâ€™s General Manager before his recent sojourn to Sunshine Stars FC of Akure, described the achievements of Warri Wolves as tremendous last season and wondered why the panel failed to give Wolves their deserved award.
â€œI am surprised that Warri Wolves did not get the Team of the Year award. A team that secured promotion a season ago, campaigned well in the Premier League (did not drop from the fourth position all through the season) and secured a continental ticket, I think they deserve that awardâ€, he said.
