Enyimba part ways with Kadiri Ikhana

28 December 2015, 20:36

Aba - Nigerian champions Enyimba have parted ways with Coach Kadiri Ikhana, News24 can report.

It remains unclear the reason for the development, but the People’s Elephants have decided not to renew Ikhana’s contract despite leading the club to the league title for the first time in five years, their seventh overall.

Ikhana is Enyimba’s most successful coach, having won the CAF Champions League (the first Nigerian coach and Nigerian club to win it) in 2003, and has also won two league and one Federation Cup titles with the People’s Elephants.

Meanwhile, reports have suggested the Nigerian champions have contacted Warri Wolves’ Paul Aigbogun, Niger Tornadoes’ Suleiman Biffo and former Ifeanyi Ubah coach, Serbian Mitko Dobrev over the possibility of replacing the 63-year old Ikhana.

The clubs has also placed defender Markson Ojobo on transfer over what it described as ‘indiscipline’, but have continued their drive in the transfer market ahead of the 2016 campaigns in the CAF Champions League and the Nigeria Professional Football League.

Their biggest transfer so far has been the acquisition of former Kano Pillars captain, Joel Theophilus Afelokhai.
