Shooting stars football club of Ibadan played host to  Bendel Insurance in the match day 22 of the 2023/24 NPFL season,both teams were on course to win the match as their positions on the log is worrisome for their board and fans.

In a heated oriented derby between the Oluyole Warriors and the Benin Arsenal,the home fans clamored for the introduction of midfielder, Abdullahi Lawal as they think Alex Aghahowa was loosing the battle in the middle of the park. Towards the end of the regular ninety minutes,the chief technical adviser of Shooting stars prepared the introduction of Abdullahi  which caused the fans to be paranoid as they think it was too late for the player to perform a miracle. During the process of the fans’ angry reaction,Ogunbote turned around,backing the field and putting his finger to the side of his head. The fans got more angry as they think Ogunbote was referring to them.

The fans did not have the patience to listen to Ogunbote’s expectations as regards his gesture after the game but,live on Fresh F.M’s daily tonic Yoruba sports program “E gba S’awon” the experienced coach explained his actions and the message he was trying to pass across to the members of his technical crew and NOT the fans.

“Thank you very much Fresh F.m. and Oba sports for this opportunity to clear the air on my gesture during the  game. First these fans are my people that love me so much because if they did not love me,they will not welcome me back to club for the third time. Secondly,the fans are the owner of the club in modern day football so,abusing them will mean I am disrespecting the owners of the club which I will never do. It is true that I put my hand beside my head but it was a message to my technical team. I was telling them that the game we were playing is not only a game that requires sense but,also high level of physicality. I was telling them to remain focused”.

Ogunbote continued by thanking the fans for their support always as he said without the fans there is nothing the team achieve. He begged the fans to continue to support the team and he promised to work harder and do everything humanly possible to push the team to a greater level.
