Sacked Crown FC coach Ganiyu Salami, said that he was not to be blamed for the poor results posted by the Ogbomosho side.
The former Nigerian Under17 head coach claimed that when he joined the club, the signing of the playing personnel had been completed, as he had no input in the recruitment of players.
“I think they have been unfair to me. This is because when I came to the club they had already employed players for the season.
“So it is so unfair to have blamed me for the situation of the team because it is a collective effort,” he said.
Asked if he was put in the picture over the transfer of the club’s best midfielder, Harrison Egbune, to Sunshine Stars, Salami answered: “Nobody told me anything about the transfer of Harrison to Sunshine Stars.”
Salami was sacked following Crown’s 0 – 2 loss to Bukola Babes after his side completed a five_game run without a point.
Crown’s sack of Salami is the third time the NPL newcomers will be firing their employees in their coaching personnel.
Godfrey Esu was sacked before the start of the season while Niyi Akande was also shown the exit door.
