Adepoju quits 3SC

10 October 2012, 12:03

Ibadan - Mutiu Adepoju has resigned his position as General Manager of Shooting Stars Sport Club. He submitted his letter of resignation on Tuesday at the club’s office in Ibadan.

The ex-international, however, said that he was travelling to Spain on Thursday to attend a two-week UEFA Pro Licence course which according to him is to re-validate the licence.

“I thank the Governor of Oyo State, the Commissioner of Sports, the board of Shooting Stars and most especially the lovely Ibadan fans for supporting me and the club for the past five years,” Adepoju said.

“I pray that the club continue to wax stronger but I have to quit now for some reasons best known to me and I honestly wish the club well in all their endeavours.

“I hope to travel to Spain on Thursday to attend a two-week UEFA Pro-3 coaching course to re-validate my coaching licence after which I will know what next to do.”

It was learnt that the former member of Super Eagles at the 1994 Africa Nations Cup winner was irked by the treatment meted to him by the board of the club which asked him to apply for a new contract after the expiration of the existing one.

Adepoju believed it was a way of telling him his services were no longer needed. He said as a Yoruba man, he knew when to call it quit instead of being ridiculed.

“I am most grateful to Almighty Allah for using me as a weapon to bring 3SC back from relegation to the Premier League, a status the club have been enjoying for the past three years now,” he added.
