Tebo Franklin sad with "disappointing" Nasarawa United loss

Tebo Franklin sad with "disappointing" Nasarawa United loss

Nasarawa United defender Tebo Franklin has described his side's 1-0 defeat to Plateau United in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) week seven on Friday as "disappointing" and "frustrating".

NPFL leaders Nasarawa United were regarded as the favourites to win Friday's match, but the Solid Miners slumped to their first defeat of the season at the Jos International Stadium.

First-half goal from Mohamed Zulkifilu ultimately proved to be the difference as the Abdu Maikaba managed team picked up victory, but Tebo Franklin also known as NPFL Sergio Ramos was eager to quickly turn his focus to the future and insists that there is still plenty of time to make up for the result.

"Really disappointing. To concede the goal like we did is very frustrating. We came in at half time a bit deflated. We picked ourselves up and played a better second half but it was frustrating," Tebo Franklin said.

"It is the first loss of the season. Still early days. We won't put pressure on ourselves. There is no outside pressure. We know our strengths and weaknesses. We go again in the next game. There are still a lot to play and we should be positive about that."

Defender Franklin denies transfer link

Defender Franklin denies transfer link 

Nasarawa United central defender Tebo Franklin has said that reports claiming he is looking to leave The Solid Miners are false.

Rumours had been circulating that the player was keen elsewhere in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

Tebo has been one of the shinning lights of Nasarawa United as they zoomed to the top of the NPFL table with 14 points, making six starts so far. 

Such an important role has led to speculation that he might be looking at opportunities elsewhere.

However the player who models his game around Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, has pledged his loyalty to the club for the foreseeable future: "I just want to deny what has been in the press about my transfer. It isn't true at all. I am always committed to Nasarawa United."

The much talked about Nigeria Professional Football League NPFL Match Day 4 tie between Adamawa United FC finally ended in a barren draw and defender, Uchenna Tebo Franklin has expressed mixed feelings over the result. 

In a chat with newsmen on arrival from Gombe, the no nonsense centre back said: "It wasn't the result we wanted, but all hope wasn't lost as we came out with one point.
