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.
