NPFL: Sporting Lagos breaks silence after relegation

Sporting Lagos has sent out a statement after they were relegated from the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL).

Their relegation was confirmed on Sunday, after a 1-0 defeat at Shooting Stars.

The result saw Sporting finish in 16th place on the log.

A statement posted on Monday on their social media, wrote: “After a whirlwind debut season in the NPFL, yesterday’s result confirms our relegation.

“It’s been an emotional several weeks — an emotional year. From a seven-game winless streak and a blowout SW derby, to Lagos Island roadshows and away game road trips, this has been a season to remember.

“But this is a 100-year project — today’s setbacks are tomorrow’s stepping stones. We will surely be back in top flight as soon as possible.

“To our fans who travel from near and far and have stuck with us through every win and loss — we say a big thank you.

“You have made every blow less painful and every triumph infinitely more meaningful.

“🎵Oh our fans, we love you🎶

“We go again! Let’s go Sporting 💙💛”
