Remo Stars goalkeeper, Chizoba Ndukwe has expressed disappointment over his error against Lobi Stars in Sunday’s Matchday 9 game of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
Ndukwe spilled Kingsley Eduwo’s shot into the path of Anthony Okpotu for a simple tap in to score the equalizer in the 48th minute.
“I felt so bad because something of this nature has never occurred in my career. I thought to myself what went wrong in the cause of the game but it’s part of the game.
“I have been with the team for over two years now and I have also been the number one man for the team. The error put me off balance but I tried controlling my emotions on the field.
“I heard so many complains from the fans as regards my error after the game but I wasn’t just myself.
“I also want to use this opportunity to appreciate my coach, Fatai Osho, his words of encouragement has really assisted me to overcome the thoughts of my error.
“I have learnt my mistakes. I know by the grace of God, I won’t make such mistakes again. One thing is to make mistakes, the other is to correct the mistakes immediately and never allow it to happen again.
“My fans aren’t happy with me but I am pleading with the fans not to be angry with me and I promise it won’t happen again. All I need from you all are your prayers and support,” Ndukwe told his club’s media team.
Ndukwe and his Remo Stars team-mates are preparing to make the short trip to Ibadan where they will face Shooting Stars Sports Club in a southwest derby this Saturday.
