Sanni might take over if Abdulrahman fails to survive axe

26 June 2015, 10:15

Abuja - The management of Kwara United will install Tunde Sanni as their new head coach if the team doesn't pick seven points in their next three Nigeria Professional Football League matches, News24 has been informed.

Coach Sanni is part of the team's technical crew led by Tunde Abdulrahman.

Latest reports from Ilorin, the base of the team that was made available to us states that the top brass of the Harmony Warriors have mooted the idea and it is on the pipeline.

According to a top official of the club who exclusively spoke to News24, “I won't accept or deny the report but we are in a situation where drastic steps need to be taken to save our dearest club from swimming back to the Nigeria National League.”

Earlier in the week, coach Abdulrahman was given a three-match ultimatum to save his job by the general manager of the club, Alhaji Haruna Maigidansanma.

Negative results against Bayelsa United, Enyimba International FC and FC Taraba could see the management wielding the axe.

Management of the club is believed to be unhappy with the performance of the coach who is under intense pressure following the side's inconsistent display in the on-going Nigeria Professional Football League season.

The reports say the former Wikki Tourists and FC Taraba coach must turn the tables around in their next three games or faced being shipped out.

Kwara United have struggled for flair and consistency this term after winning only four games out of 12.

The side's 1-1 draw at home to Lobi Stars last Sunday has not helped matters for Abdulrahman who is now gasping for space as pressure continues to mount.

Kwara United will travel to Oghara to face Bayelsa United in the week 14 of the Nigeria Professional Football League on Sunday.
