Another drama is set to occur today at the headquarters of the Liberia Football Association on Benson Street. A source at the blue building told The New Republic Sports Desk that officials of the 132nd division football teams plying in the Liberian division two league will today present a strong statement to the hierarchy of the football house to rethink its decision not to relegate six clubs to the lower division for the good of the game.
Our source said that the stakeholders are defending this posture on ground that many may reason with, according to them, the 2011/2012 rules and regulations of the national league was presented to clubs in their division with about ten matches already being played, which stated that about six teams from the bottom to be demoted and which time they were directly dealing with the 2010/2011 rules which allow three clubs with the lowest points to vacate the league.
Another thing for the clubs to hold on is teams refusing to participate in the league after the fixture was drawn will also form part of the consigned teams.
But the clubs administrators are pushing a point that those teams that refused to form part of the league with their names on the fixture should be the only clubs being downgraded. Fulani FC, Mighty, Blue Diamond FC and Zelo FC are the clubs that pulled out of the league.
The LFA maybe on the wrong footing for the fact that there was no workshop organized to explain the new rules before the kickoff of the 2011/2012 league season, which of course is mandatory.
Meanwhile, late last week, 2nd divisions club of the Liberia Football Association presented a strong statement to Musa Bility in their quest to resolving all controversial games played in that division to be immediately investigated and all LFA's staffs including Chairman of competition, Acting Secretary General, the two statisticians and Director of referee should all be dismissed for their role in the controversial matches.
