The chairman of the NFF technical committee, said he was being attacked by 'powers too strong for him, and those he never expected will turn against him'.
“The pressure is on me to quit, I have done so much for this club over the years and I don’t think I can hold on any more. I also have to consider my health,” he told journalist in Lagos after their goalless draw against Sunshine Stars which meant nothing to them as they have already won the league with one game to spare.
During his 16 years at the People’s Elephant, Enyimba won all their major honours, including two CAF Champions League and seven league titles.
