Manu Garba named as Giwa FC boss

17 September 2015, 14:10

Lagos - 2015 African Youth Championship winning coach, Manu Garba will be on the touchline for Giwa FC in the match-day 30 of the Nigeria Professional Football League, News24 can authoritatively confirm.

A former Golden Eaglets coach has made a return to coaching since he tinkered the Flying Eagles to a second round run in the 2015 FIFA U20 World Cup held in New Zealand.

He has been handed the job after caretaker coach Aminu Musa, was told to step aside earlier in the week.

Garba is widely known for his feat in 2013 when he became the 4th coach to have led the Golden Eaglets to win the FIFA U17 World Cup.

He becomes the third coach to lead the team in the ongoing domestic season after Tope Bolus was fired by the no-nonsense owner of the club, Ambassador Chris Giwa.

The soft-spoken Garba was presented to the players and took charge of training season on Thursday morning.

His first assignment will be a week 30 fixture against relegation-threatened Sharks at the Rwang Pam Stadium on Sunday.
