Super Eagles defender Shehu Abdullahi has apologised to Bursaspor fans following the team’s relegation to lower cadre from the Turkish Super Lig, reports Completesports.com.
The Greens defeated Yeni Malatyaspor 2-1 on the final day of the season last Sunday but the result was not enough to secure their safety.
They finished in 16th position in the table with 32 points from 34 points, going down along with BB Erzurumspor and Akhisarsapor.
A visibly disappointed Abdullahi took to the social media to thank the fans for their support all through the campaign, while also backing the team to come back stronger from the setback.
“My deepest apologies to all of the supporters @bursaspor for a disappointing season. Your support throughout the tough times has always been great. Thank you for sticking by us and I know you will continue to do so. The spirit of the club will not allow this setback to hold us down. We will rise again with the motivation to get back to where we belong!?,” Abdullahi wrote on his instagram page.
It remains to be seen if Abdullahi will stay with Bursaspor for their campaign in the second tier or will seek a move to a big stage elsewhere.
