Kennedy Boboye has been appointed the new head coach of Nigeria Professional Football League club, Akwa United FC.
Boboye takes charge of the Uyo based club following John Obuh’s resignation on Monday morning.
Obuh cited indiscipline and insubodination by some of the players as the main reason for his decision to leave the club.
The resignation, which had been accepted by the management of the club, is the aftermath of a disappointing eight match start to the 2019/2020 NPFL season by Akwa United.
The media manager of Akwa United, Mfon Patrick said the club’s Secretary, Omon Bassey, expressed the gratitude of the chairman, for the service rendered to the club during his short stay. “Yes, coaches take responsibility when things go awry, yet we can testify to the professionalism and discipline you brought to bear in the running of the club.
“This includes your untiring belief in the God factor in the life of this great organisation. We will miss you. “Akwa United wish you well in your future endeavours, even as we daily strive to restore the confidence of our numerous fans worldwide,” he said.
Boboye previously had spells at Sunshine Stars, Abia Warriors, Plateau United and Remo Stars.
He led Plateau United to win their first NPFL title in 2017Boboye had his first training session with the Promise Keepers on Monday afternoon and will be unveiled before Wednesday’s NPFL matchday-nine encounter against Rivers United at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Uyo.
Akwa United have recorded just one win from their opening eight league games this season as the Promise Keepers are currently in 16th position in the NPFL table.
