ABS FC defender Ajanah Chinedu has expressed disappointment after he picked up the first red card of his career against Sunshine Stars during the Week-8 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
The 19-year-old has been in spectacular form for the Bukola Saraki Boys this season and his form at the back has helped the team maintain a solid home record as they have only conceded just once in front of their die-hard supporters.
Speaking with SportingLife, he said: “The red card was so painful. After receiving the first yellow I was very cautious and with less than a minute to go and the scores at 2-2 then I was about to play the goal-kick when the referee ran towards me and booked me for time wasting.
“I was surprised and wasn’t happy because 30 seconds later the referee blew the final whistle.”
Ajanah will miss this weekend’s game against struggling Wikki Tourists but has backed his teammates to deliver the three points at stake.
