It was earlier reported by some media outlets that the management of Confluence Queens led by Mallam Abdul Sule are denying Whyte the freedom to carry out his job accordingly.
However, the chairman has denied the allegations and insisted the public should not be misguided
“At no point has anyone one from the management interfere in Ogbonda’s job. We gave him all freedom to do his job because we believed in his technical know how,” the former Super Eagles star said in an official statement.
“Ogbonda is a good coach and he has proved that by qualifying Confluence Queens to our first ever Super 4 where we came second. He has always gotten all the necessary supports from the management and other technical crew.”
“Before our match against Rivers Angels, he wrote his list and brought it to the management. In our usual tradition, I went through the list and only complained about a player by name Esther Kanu that for now she is not fit enough to play. He defended his selection and I said fine,” the ex Stores player recalled.
“I never asked him to remove or add anyone and we played with the same list. I was surprised he accused the management of selecting players that played against Rivers. How?
“It’s unfortunate he wants to mislead the public with interference claims. We played well against Rivers Angels even though we drew 1-1.”
“We never interfered in his job,” he added.
