Odegbami linked with Kwara United

02 December 2015, 08:20

Abuja - Ex-Nigeria international Segun Odegbami could be set to work in Ilorin after being linked with Nigeria National League side, Kwara United, News24 can exclusively reveal.

The Harmony Boys have set their sights in making a return to the Nigeria Professional Football League after their relegation at the end of the 2014/15 season -  and the revelation that the Ilorin-based side will invest heavily in talented personnel and players has seen them being linked with the experienced administrator.

The former Shooting Stars winger was spotted at the office of the Commissioner of Sports in Kwara State, Ayo Bolakale on Monday.

Bolakale confirmed that the Alhaji Haruna Maigidansanma-led management and Technical crew of the Ilorin based league side had been dissolved following the club's relegation from the NPFL.

Kwara United will play in the Nigeria National League despite just gaining promotion to the top flight last season.

Bolakale stated that the decision became necessary following the club's ‘shameful outing’ in the recently concluded season and a lot of internal wrangling between the management and Technical crew of the club.

If the rumoured romance becomes fruitful, Odegbami will take over from Alhaji Haruna Maigidansanma as the General Manager of Kwara United.
