Head Coach of Kano Pillars Football Club, Ibrahim Musa, on Sunday decried what he termed “delay tactics style of football’’ deployed by Rivers United FC during their 1-2 defeat at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt.
Musa told journalists after their Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Match Day 21 fixture that the host team players were “just falling on the pitch”.
He said while his team played with high intensity from the first to the last minute, their hosts were just playing negative football.
The win by united pitched them second on the NPFL table behind league leaders Plateau United.
