The Nigerian Premier Football League (NPFL) champions, Enyimba has parted ways head coach, Usman Abd’allah.
The two times CAF Champions League winners sacked Abd’allah less than 24hrs after the Aba club lost to league Leaders Plateau United by 4-0 on Sunday.
As a result of lack of results in the domestic front, the defending champions are languishing in 13th place on the table after ten matches with just four wins.
The club announced in a statement released on Monday, saying the sack is with immediate effect.
“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 statement read.
The club also announced that in the interim, Fatai Osho would take over the head coach duties.
Also confirming the development, the club’s Chairman, Felix Anyansi Agwu, said the decision was not taken in haste.
This is not a decision we 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 anything less.”
The Club wished the sacked manager the best for the future and thanked him for his service.
Recall that Abdallah led the Aba millionaires to the NPFL title last year as they won the postseason super six but has often been criticised for lack of fluid football by the fans.
