Ogbonda, who hails from Port Harcourt in Rivers state saw his wards force out a 1-1 draw with his hometown club Angels in a thrilling Premiership contest at the Confluence Stadium, Lokoja on Wednesday. He went on a mild outburst after the game.
“I’ve always said it. The management should stop interfering with my job. If they don’t want me to do this job, let them come and do the job, or better still they should let me go,” Ogbonda told newsmen.
When asked if he is not wary of being relieved of his duties aftermath of this outburst, the former Ibom Angels coach retorted:
“Scared for what? As soon as I leave here today I will get a job. I’m not going to stay more than five minutes and I will get a job so I’m not afraid of being sacked. I’m ready to leave, I’m ready to stay that is why I want this to be aired out.
“The management is interfering with my job and that is what is affecting my job here,” Ogbonda reaffirmed.
In Wednesday’s game, Glory Edet opened scoring Ogbonda’s Queens in the 4th minute through a setpiece delivery by Joy Omewa but their visitors drew level in the 14th minute through Regina Otu who rounded off a flowing team move that involved Deborah Abiodun and Ikhekhua Brume to finish home from close range.
