Reigning NPFL champions Enyimba have sacked its head coach Usman Abd’allah with immediate effect.
In a statement released on Monday, the club said:
“After a string of disappointing results the club believes it must set a new course now and regain its competitive edge, domestically and on the continent.”
The club also announced that in the interim, Fatai Osho will take over the head coach duties.
Chairman, Felix Anyansi Agwu, said: “This is not a decision we have have taken lightly, nor in haste.
“Results and performances since the start of this season have been very unimpressive and the club must take action to forestall further setbacks.
“We are speaking to the players too and they must do better otherwise there will be consequences. As Enyimba we are committed to earning positive results always and we can’t accept nothing less.”
The Club wishes Coach Usman Abd’allah the best for the future and thank him for his service.
Abdallah led Enyimba to the NPFL title last year as they won the post season super six but his has often been critisized for lack of fluid football by the fans.
