The Chairman of Abubakar Bukola Saraki (ABS) Football Club of Ilorin, Seni Saraki, has approved the appointment of former Kwara United FC Head Coach, Tunde Sanni, as the club’s Technical Adviser. Alloy Chukwuemeka, ABS FC’s Director of Football, told journalists on today in Ilorin that the former Shooting Stars FC player would take charge of the club in March.
Sanni’s appointment became necessary after the expiration of the contract of Coach Henry Makinwa who is presently on disengagement leave in Spain.
“Makinwa’s contract was for two seasons, and it expired at the end of last season,’’ Chukwuemeka said.
He said Sanni’s wealth of experience earned him the job, and urged the club’s supporters to give him the needed support for the progress of the club.
Sanni had worked under the likes of Festus Onigbinde, the late Kafaru Alabi and late Amodu Shuaibu, Joe Erico, Clemens Westerhof and Fatai Amoo. The newly appointed technical adviser holds a CAF ‘B’ coaching license. Chukwuemeka said details of his contract will be made available during his unveiling ceremony.
