Gombe United, Enyimba to tempt Biffo away from Tornadoes

25 December 2015, 16:41

Lagos - Gombe United and Enyimba FC are interested in the services of Niger Tornadoes head coach Abdullahi Usman Biffo.

The former Giwa FC and Kogi United tactician has seen his stock rise after successfully leading Tornadoes to the Nigeria National League title in Abuja.

He also masterminded the club's return to the Nigeria Professional Football League after three seasons in the NNL.

A top official at Gombe United has been quoted as suggesting that they are hugely keen on signing up a young up-and-coming manager.

“Yes, there is a very tempting argument to hire a young coach here.” He said.

The official then mentioned that they were planning in trying to convince Biffo to sign for Gombe United.

“The main feature of the new coach will be that he must have a deep love for Gombe United and help us gain promotion to the NPFL. If Biffo doesn't accept our proposal, we will seek alternatives.”

Chairman of Enyimba FC, Felix Anyansi Agwu will also attempt to convince the coach to move to Aba.

It's not certain on his role for the seven-time Premier League champions as Kadiri Ikhana is still the head coach of the CAF Champions League campaigners.

Efforts to reach Biffo has proved abortive on the reported moves by Gombe United and Enyimba FC.
