Ghana goalkeeper Daniel Agyei has lashed at his teammates at Free State Stars for their lack of effort in helping the side escape relegation.
The 24-year-old suffered a 2-1 defeat on his return to first team action to Mamelodi Sundowns on Tuesday night.
Agyei had been out for the past three weeks recovering from a hernia operation.
Ea Lla Koto are currently just a point above the drop zone with just eight matches left.
But the Black Stars goalkeeper has slammed his teammatesâ€™ lack of effort in the sideâ€™s struggle to beat the drop.
â€œThe football here is a bit different. The locals [players] here just donâ€™t care,â€
â€œThey are comfortable playing at home and therefore are not challenged to fight and improve themselves.
â€œAnd that is why we concede a lot of goals because basically the defenders just donâ€™t put in the extra effort.â€
Free State Stars will be hoping to get more points on the board when they host Orlando Pirates in their next premiership match.
