Glo Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions, Enyimba FC, have fined striker Daniel Etor for unruly behaviour which also saw him sent off in their Game Week 37 tie against Warri Wolves.
The management of Enyimba FC have stated that Etor’s next salary will be cut by half as a fine for his unsporting conduct during the tie against Warri Wolves.
Etor was shown the red card by the center referee in the 50th minute of the encounter for retaliating by hitting Wolves’ striker Gbolahan Salami. An act that almost cost the People’s Elephant a 7th league title, but all that was needed was a draw to clinch the title.
The match ended a goalless draw and Enyimba were crowned NPFL champions for a record 7th time.
Enyimba FC reported on their website that the striker has apologised to fans and the management of the club for his attitude during the game and it will not repeat itself again.
“I regret my actions,” he said. “Imagine if my team had lost the game, I would have received all the blame. I feel very bad about what happened.”
“After we have worked hard from the start of the season, to let my team down like that in such an important game is something I regret but I thank God we still prevailed.
“I want the fans to know that I’m very sorry and assure them it will never happen again. It was all in the heat of the game. Salami hit me and I reacted angrily without thinking. I will control my actions better in the future and never let them down again,” Etor said..
