Ex-international and former Head Coach of Bet9ja Nigeria National League side, Osun United Football Club, Duke Udi, has return to the club with a quest to help the team achieve greatness at the end of the 2018 season.
According to a release by the club’s media manager, Tunde Shamsudeen, Udi who left the Omoluabi Giants mid way through last season to team up with Sunshine Stars on rescue mission, has been saddled with the responsibility of turning the fortunes of the State of Osun darling team around.
Osun United on Saturday sacked coach Adebayo Adesina and his assistants Kazeem Oseni and Gbenga Ajayi Obe, after a poor run inform having garnered five (5) points from possible eighteen (18) points with the team languishing at the bottom of the NNL Group B2 log.
President, Osun United Engineer Jimoh Olayemi, confirmed the team has agreed personal terms with Udi and is scheduled to resume on Friday June 8, to take charge of the club dwindling at the bottom spot of the log.
“We have reached an agreement with Duke Udi. We’re confident he is going to return the team back to the winning ways.”
Udi expressed happiness on his second return to the team just as he promised that Osun United will get better and swim out of relegation zone.
“Its a great feeling to be back again with this team, I thank the management for this second chance and I promise to make everybody proud, we will work together to get out of our present position,” Udi told OSUN UNITED MEDIA.
Udi will be assisted by Coach Tony Alegbe who they work together at Sunshine Stars in his second stint in charge of the Omoluabi Giants.
