The management of Shooting Stars Sports club of Ibadan has denied the ‘exit’ of one of its players, Ayobami Junior.
The club in a press statement made available to OYOINSIGHT explained that even though the management of Kano Pillars have written them to signify interest in the player, they are yet to make any other official engagement.
The statement signed by the club’s Media Officer, Tosin Omojola read in parts: “The attention of the management of the Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan, has been drawn to news flying around that one of our players, Ayobami Junior has joined Kano Pillars FC.
“We want to state clearly through this medium, that the midfielder is still a bonafide player of the Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC), as at now.
“Even though we are aware of his desire to join Pillars who have also written a letter to us,, asking for his services, but there has not been any official negotiation between both teams regarding the issue.
“However, we are putting the record straight here that Kano Pillars, apart from the letter they wrote, have not had any official engagement with the management of the Oluyole Warriors.
“After receiving the letter in which Kano Pillars declared their interest in the player, some requirements were tabled before them which they have not met up till this moment.
“However, if Kano Pillars failed to do the needful, believing that Ayobami Junior is a free player, time will definitely tell.
“Shooting Stars are not against his (Ayobami Junior) wish to move, as we are not against the personal dreams and aspiration of any player but we believe things should be done professionally.”
