The resignation of our head coach Fatai Osho has been accepted with mixed feelings by the Akwa United Management.
According to the Chairman of the club Elder Paul Bassey, “coach Osho is a victim of world wide football tradition where coaches, no matter how good, pay the price for poor run of their teams.
” He is a good coach, he remains one of the best in the land, unfortunately, it did not work for him at Akwa United.
“Osho came to a club that in the past eight years boasts a tradition of excellence, hence the misgivings of our supporters world wide. He is a victim of Akwa United’s success. We wish him well going forward”.
The Management added further that replacing Fatai Osho will not be easy and wants to appreciate all those who have expressed the desire to coach the club.
“We have received so many applications home and abroad and we are not in a hurry to make a decision. For now, the assistant coaches led by Umar Abdullahi are in charge of the team“.
In a tweet following his resignation coach Fatai Osho wrote:
