Abdulrahman fears getting sacked after Kwara United defeat

02 July 2015, 10:45

Abuja - Tunde Abdulrahman is on the brink of facing the wrath of the executioner as Kwara United head coach after his charges were beaten 3-2 by Enyimba International FC, News24 has exclusively gathered.

His five months tenure in charge is becoming untenable after he was the target of repeated taunts from his own fans throughout the week 15 Nigeria Professional Football League clash against the People's Elephants on Wednesday.

The furious home fans started leaving the Kwara State Stadium as soon as Ojobo Markson converted a 77th minute spot-kick for the six-time Premier League champions to make it 3-1.

The passionate Ilorin faithful’s called for the coach to be axed if the club is to survive the drop to the dreaded Nigeria National League.

Defeat against FC Taraba, who they visit next Sunday, could spell the end for the former Wikki Tourists boss.

Kwara United have lost their last three matches to Akwa United, Bayelsa United and Enyimba. They have scored three goals and conceded seven goals in the process.

Abdulrahman took charge at the club in February 2015 and was handed a one year deal to tinker the team.

But just five months into that, he is on the verge of the sack. General Manager Alhaji Haruna Maigidansanma was a worried man as he witnessed the crushing defeat with some top brass of the club.

Should the axe fall, former Sunshine Stars manager Henry Abiodun and Tunde Sanni would both be in the frame.
