A certain Joseph Langabel’s nonsensical behavior and abuse of our players immediately after our game against
Hearts of Oak yesterday has no place in modern game of football. The players who play for us are humans with blood flowing through veins who deserve some respect!
We further wish to condemn the act of the security officials at the stadium who gleefully watched the said Langabel carry out such condemnable acts of violence on our players.
We call on the National Sports Authority to safeguard the security of our sports men and women at the stadium!”
