Sports Dolphins Captain Blames His Side's Poor NPFL Run On Money Problem

Dolphins FC captain, Festus Austine has blamed his side's poor run in the Nigeria Professional Football League 2014/15 season on financial issues, saying the Rivers state government have refused to pay all their arrears for almost two years now.

The Port Harcout boys were held to a goalless draw at home by visiting FC IfeanyiUbah at the Liberation stadium on Sunday, but the central defender believes it was due to "low team spirit".

He further explained that keeping the boys focused on the target is a hard task but insists they will continue to fight to retain a spot for the 2015/16 league season.

"Financial problem from the start of the season."

"We were a better side but the performance did not show in the result,"
"There was low team spirit"

"We need to win three remaining home games to stay in the NPFL,"

"I am trying my best as captain to talk with them not to lose focus but i must tell you the players need the money too that is there pension almost getting to 24 months arrears"
