Pressure Mounts For Lone Star Coach To Resign

Following back-to-back defeats at the hands of Cape Verde in the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the Liberia national team head coach Peter Butler is under immense pressure to resign his job at the helm of the Lone Star.

The calls for the Englsihman’s resignation are being made mainly by football enthusiasts and even sports journalists

It has been gathered by highly placed sources that that coach Butler has already informed few of his trusted players immediately after the game in Cape Verde on Sunday, October 10, 2021, that he will resign his position when he returns to Monrovia.

The English coach’s contract was about to be reviewed at the end of November until his most recent nightmare.

He signed a one year contract in August this year to be reviewed after every three months by the Liberia Football Association (LFA) Technical Committee headed by Executive Committee member, Ivan Brown.

A 90th minute goal from Ryan Mendes sealed a hardfought 1-0 home win for Cape Verde against Liberia, in Sunday’s Group C game.

In the reverse fixture on Thursday, October 7, 2021, Cape Verde also scored in added time in the 2-1 win against the Lone Star.

The win took Cape Verde to seven points, just two points behind Nigeria and in second place.

They will now host Central African Republic on matchday five when the qualifiers resume in November.

In the group’s other game, the Super Eagles defeated Central African Republic 2-0 to avenge Thursday’s loss.

First half goals from Leon Balogun and Victor Osimhen sealed the important win.
