Monrovia- Ms Benita Urey, President of Liberia Football Association Upper Women’s League club Shaita Angles has expressed disappointment in those calling for the resignation of Mustapha Raji as president of the country football house.

On Monday, January 15, 2024, former national team players and disenchanted football followers resumed their protest, calling for the immediate resignation of the Liberia Football Association President, Mustapha I. Raji due to alleged poor management of the local football house.

The angry football lovers began their protests in November of 2023 following Lonestar’s home defeat to Malawi in the 2026 FIFA World Cup  Cup qualifiers.

But speaking with this reporter Tuesday at her Congo Town residence, the Shaita Angles President described the protest as unpatriotic for football development in the country.

“Despite having my own issue with Mr. Raji, I think those supporting a series of protests against him are not doing well for Liberian football” she.


According to the female football administrator, the act of staging protests from one office to another has the propensity to drive away investors from the country’s sports sector.

“Football is our biggest sport so such act can even lead to FIFA or CAF holding back their support to the Liberia Football Association due to alleged corruption news on social media.

Speaking about her club, Ms. Urey said Shaita Angels is fully prepared for the second phase of the league season by bringing in three new players to improve the squad.

“We have brought in three new players that include two defenders from Liberia and a Ghanaian player to help us win the champions and the Orange Cup.

At the same time, the LFA Upper Women’s outfit is expected to bid farewell to one of its players who will be joining a club in Eastern Europe.

“We have signed a partnership with a club in Europe to transfer female players every season but more will be said on Saturday at our game when we are going to say a goodbye message to one of our players” she concluded.
