Director of football at Bayelsa United, Deprieye Tebowei, has said that the club will battle till the end to avoid relegation.
Bayelsa United finished third in the league at the end of last season, but the club has been battling with relegation this season.
They are currently 15th on the table, three points above the last relegation spot.
In an interview with League Rendervous, the director said the club will surely avoid relegation at the end of the season. “Football could be funny sometimes, it is unfortunate that we are where we are today, but I can assure you that the club will not be relegated at the end of the season.
“The government has been doing everything to make the players happy. Their salary has been paid till date, likewise the match bonuses. The only thing remaining is the sign-on fee which is being processed.
“To get funds from government takes time, but I can assure the players that they will get paid as soon as the money is released to the club,” the former Green Eagles player said. While commending the League Management Company, he however, noted that more work still needed to be done to make the league the best on the continent.
