Obuh sends bad-boy George-Whyte packing

By Fidelis Ebu, Abuja

Flying Eagles coach, John Obuh, to bare his zero tolerance to indiscipline as he sent packing the team striker, Agwuocha George_Whyte over alleged indiscipline ahead this weekend’s final phase African Youth Championship qualifier against Mauritius at the Abuja National Stadium.

A dependable source said George_Whyte that was invited from Kwara United allegedly sneaked away from the camp at the wee hours to unknown destination.

It was reliably gathered that luck ran out of the striker as he was involved in an auto crash even though he escaped with minor bruise that did not pose any threat to his chosen career.

The source stated that the player that was part of the Flying Eagles’ squad that hit Mauritius 2_0 in the away first leg of the African Youth Championship qualifier in Mauritius after sneaking out of camp, had gone to his parents that reside in the Federal Capital Territory to remove his car, which brand was not disclosed to the neighbouring Nasarawa State.

It was learnt that the player’s sudden disappearance from the camp was not immediately noticed until the news filtered in that he was involved in an auto crash.
Coach Obuh when contacted was hesitant to bare his mind on the issue, but when pressed for words merely said that he would not condone any form of indiscipline from his players.

“We are all here in camp for serious assignment and someone who wants to tell the whole world that he is wiser decided to flout the camp rule. I don’t want anyone that would infest my team with dangerous virus, and I’ve decided to send him out of the camp before more harm is done to the rest of the players.

“This weekend’s game is very important, and I would not want any distraction”, Coach John Obuh said.
He said his team’s first leg 2_0 bashing of the Mauritius was not enough to go to sleep as the visitors could spring surprises.

“We won the first leg in away game, and there is every tendency that they could also beat us here before our home crowd. The game is not won until the final whistle”, he added.

The Mauritius are however being expected here tomorrow with 25_man team to be led by their FA president aboard South African airline.

Robinson Okosun, the Nigeria Football Federation Chief Media Officer confirmed last night that arrangements have already been reserved for the Mauritius team.

“We are noted world wide for hospitality, and same would be accorded our visitors when they arrive Abuja Thursday. It will even start from Lagos where they would first arrive before moving to Abuja Thursday for the return leg at the Abuja National Stadium”, Robinson Okosun said.
