Why Unuanel was named as Sunshine Stars gaffer

14 December 2015, 08:08

Lagos - Facts have emerged why the management of Sunshine Stars decided to settle for the services of newly employed head coach Samson Unuanel, reports News24.

With the shock resignation of Kennedy Boboye at the end of the 2014/15 Nigeria Professional Football League season, several top coaches had lobbied for the job.

The management of the club had made Ladan Bosso their number one target but his outrageous demands put them off in securing the services of the ex-Flying Eagles gaffer.

Some years back, Sunshine Stars had made attempts to sign the former Ocean Boys coach but the deal fell through according to transfer sources.

The opportunity to sign the coach for the restoration of the club's glory was too juicy to reject after he dazzled the panel of experts that interviewed him on his plans for the Owena Waves some days back in Akure.

According to a top official of the club who didn't want his mentioned in print, “Coach Samson Unuanel really won the hearts of the management with the way he responded to questions that he was asked.”

“Some of them wondered why he hasn't managed any of the men's national side and were convinced he is the man to lead Sunshine Stars to the promise land,” the official said.

“The management will give him the necessary tools to be successful and trust the fans they will support his ideas.”
