NNL: Coach Fired After One Game!
No nonsense this season!
This appears to be the new motto of the Nigeria National League side, Kogi United.
On Monday, the club announced the sack of their coach just after one game.
The management of Kogi United FC have asked their Head Coach, Ishaya Jatau to step aside as a result of his poor start.
In a statement signed by the club chairman, Abdul Sule in Lokoja Jatau's assistant Musa Abubakar will act in his capacity until a new coach is appointed.
The statement explained that the decision was reached after the club's disappointing 1-0 loss to FC Zamfara in the Matchday one of the new season.
"We are aspiring to get promoted to NPFL this season, we tried that last year but we couldn't succeed due to tactical deficiencies as we lost most games in the dying minutes, also our last result against FC Zamfara wasn't encouraging, that reflected from the preseason we had.
"We have a good team but unfortunately we don't have a tactical approach, this result to our decision and I've asked the chief coach, Ishaya Jatau to step aside for now and his assistant Musa Abubakar to act for now until a decision is reached in that regard for a new handler.
It's a very difficult decision to take, but that's the game, Jatau is a nice and great guy, he's tried all he could but things doesn't really worked out for him so we wish him well," said the statement.
