Sunshine Stars Technical Adviser, Kabiru Dogo, has said that the problems facing the team were more than what the eyes could be imagined.
He urged the supporters of the team to look more than the players and the technical crew.
Dogo said this on Sunday in Akure after his team had drawn visiting Warri Wolves 1-1 in the matchday 2 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) at the Ondo Sports Complex, Akure.
Charles Upele had put Warri Wolves ahead in the 29th minute through a bullet header from a corner before Sunshine Stars forward, Israel Abia calmly slot home to the bottom corner from the edge of the box to restore parity.
All efforts by the home team to ensure maximum three points proved abortive.
In his post-match news conference, when asked why there were no new signings on the pitch of play, he simply replied that the management of the team was in the best position to answer the question.
Dogo said that with the performance of his team in the preseason, he believed his team had what it takes to perform better
“Anybody that is here today will know that in spite of that, we managed to play, just that unfortunately, the result didn’t speak of the performance of the two teams.
“We signed some new players, unfortunately, there are some problem logistically, the management will tell you better on that, for now, this is what I have on the ground.
“Anybody that follows the team will know that even in the preseason we did well the problem of Sunshine is more than what we could see.
“The people of Ondo State should look more inward for this team and they should know that that this team belong to all Ondo State people, am just appealing,” he said.

Dogo also urged the organisers of the league to follow the example of Morocco and try to introduce Video Assistant Referee (VAR) to aid referee decisions.
The Coach of Warri Wolves, Evans Ogenyi, hailed the performance of his boys for having a decent game and picking a point from home.
“We had a decent game against Sunshine Stars, no team is a pushover in NPFL. Any game in the premier league can go either side. I played draw at home too in the matchday one.
“I told my boys that the only way we can redeem ourselves is to come here to get a good result.
