Former national team captain William Jebor has pulled out of Liberia squad, says he no longer wants to play for Liberia, the Liberia Football Association has disclosed.
According to the Liberia Football Association (LFA), Jebor said coach Peter Butler disrespected him by using him from the bench.
“He has declined to honor the return leg away to Chad and has asked the Liberia Football Association (LFA) to secure a flight to his club in the United Arab Emirates.
LFA President Mustapha Raji and executive committee member Henry Boyd Flomo held a meeting with Jebor at the team’s RLJ Hotel over his decision after the game but couldn’t reach a common ground,” a statement from the LFA says.
Meanwhile, Coach Butler said he will comment on Jebor’s decision at the appropriate time.
Contrary to the FA’s statement that the former captain has pulled out of the squad, Jebor said he will not travel with the national team to Chad for the return-leg due to illness.
“Sorry guys, I will not be traveling because I’m feeling a little ill. Hope next time, I wish you well
God bless. #Liberiafirst❤️, Jebor posted on his official page.
