Nigeria Professional Football League outfit, Akwa United will unveil their new head coach, on Monday, 5th November, Completesportsnigeria. com reports.
Abdu Maikaba, who has tinkered the Promise Keepers for the past two seasons recently left his post to link up with NPFL champions, Plateau United.
Maikaba guided Akwa United to win the Aiteo Federation Cup last year following a 3-2 penalty shoot-out win against Niger Tornadoes.
He left following the expiration of his two-year contract with the Promise Keepers.
“We will unveil our new Coach on Monday 5th Nov 2018,” reads a tweet on the club’s official Twitter handle.
Flying Eagles head coach, Paul Aigbogun and former Plateau United technical adviser, Kennedy Boboye are rumoured to be the leading candidates for the vacant position.
CSN also gathered that the club’s hierarchy are also working on the possibility of hiring an expatriate to handle the side in the new season.
The Uyo club came second in the just concluded Nigeria Professional Football League season and were quarter-finalists in the Federation Cup where they lost to eventual champions, Enugu Rangers on penalties.
