Following the poor run of Kwara United and Wiki Tourists so far in this season, the management of both clubs have given their respective Coaches two-match ultimatum for improvement or get sacked.

This comes after both teams failed to end their winless runs in their match-day four encounters amid disappointing displays.

The Harmony Boys was defeated twice and two draws after four games played, while Wikki has drawn a match so far and lost three times.

The result sees both teams languishing in the relegation zone of their respective groups, with Kwara placed 19th in Group A of the NPFL log with two points from their opening four games, while Wikki are rock bottom of Group B with just a point from four games.

The General Manager of Kwara United, Bashir Badawiy, revealed that the management would not tolerate any negative result from the team as they play in the “dangerous” abridged NPFL league.

“The team has no excuse not to perform, going by the commitment of the government, the determination of the management and the sacrifice by the supporters and stakeholders.

“And that is why we have decided to give the team a two-match ultimatum. They should rather perform or give way. We are playing in a dangerous league, the abridged league, and we cannot tolerate this kind of result.” Badawiy said

Kwara United will host former champions Plateau United in their next league game at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Ibadan on Wednesday.

Wikki secretary, Idris Pali, on behalf of the board and the management of the club, also expressed dissatisfaction with the team’s performance since the start of the season.

He added that proper action would be taken if the team didn’t win their next two games.

Coach Kabiru Dogo faces a daunting task in keeping his job as his next two games are against Group B leaders Rivers United and Enugu Rangers.

“The board members and management of Wikki Tourist have found unsatisfactorily (performance of Wikki), which has led to the decline of the team’s performance. The board has however handed the technical crew a two-match ultimatum to win their next two games or proper action will be taken against you (Dogo) considering the terms of our agreement. I hope he gives us the best going forward.”
