Former Sunshine coach Boboye unveiled by Abia Warriors

18 December 2015, 15:04Israel Ojoko

Umuahia - Abia Warriors FC have unveiled the immediate past Coach of Sunshine Stars of Akure, Kennedy Boboye as its new Manager.

The 37-year-old former U-23 star was unveiled in Umuahia to the club’s fans and well-wishers in a ceremony that attracted top management in Abia State.

Boboye, who was accompanied to the occasion by his manager, Idika Okoro, is coming to Umuahia having led Sunshine Stars to a 6th finish in last season’s league and missed a continental ticket by whiskers. He replaces former Flying Eagles tactician, Isa Ladan Bosso, who led Abia Warriors in its first two premier league seasons.

In his speech, the Chairman of Abia Warriors FC, Emeka Inyama said the club was happy to grab a man that he monitored and admired for a long time because of his technical qualities and hoped he would bring his experience to bear.

Inyama, who commended the State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu for his relentless support to Abia Warriors, lamented that Bosso could not meet the club’s target of picking at least a continental ticket in the two seasons he held sway, adding that the club has accepted his resignation and wished him well in his future endeavours.

The Chairman, however reminded Boboye that the ball was now in his court, insisting that the club’s ambition is to go for the league title or at least pick a continental ticket at the end of the season, as he promised him of all the assistance needed from the management in order to succeed.

Speaking shortly after signing the dotted lines, Boboye said he was happy to be a member of the Abia Warriors family and promised that he would consolidate on the foundation already established in order to take the club to the expected height.

While calling for all hands to be on deck, Boboye, said he had always admired the way Abia Warriors play, revealing that he decided to pitch his tent with the Umuahia based outfit despite offers coming from elsewhere, and promised that with God on his side he would meet the club’s aspirations at the end of the season.
