Aluko  Appointed Ipswich Town First- Team Coach

Ipswich Town have announced the appointment of Sone Aluko as their first-team coach.

Aluko , who played for the Blues between August 2021 and May 2024, announced his retirement from playing this summer.

During his career, the former winger represented numerous clubs including Aberdeen, Rangers, Hull City and Fulham, as well as playing international football with Nigeria, before arriving at Portman Road.

His playing days at Town saw him set consistently high standards and contribute to the first-team environment, working closely with his teammates and coaches on the way to more than 50 appearances across all competitions and back-to-back promotions.

Aluko also progressed with his coaching badges – along with other members of the first-team squad – as a player and will now begin working with Kieran and the other coaches.

“It is a real privilege to start the next phase of my career by joining the first -team coaching staff here at the Club,” Aluko told the Club website.

“Learning from the Manager and all the coaching staff here is a fantastic opportunity for me. It is a great time to be at Ipswich, and I’m really looking forward to helping the squad continue to learn and take on the challenge of the Premier League.”

  • Nice one, let the good appointments and offers keep coming in for our past legends.

    When we tell our lazy ex-internationals to stop lazying around at NFF’s ‘beautiful gate’ waiting for piece jobs to start their coaching careers, their poverty-stricken worshippers will come after us for daring to “talk ill” of their “rich” gods.

    I once said here that the best place to kick-start your managerial career and start getting your coaching badges done is at any of your former club. One drunk riffraff lambasted me for having the guts to advise someone who has played at 3 WCs and won AFCON as captain, claiming he is good enough (even better than Rohr) on the basis of that to coach the SE to the 2022 WC.

    We are still waiting for the ex-international to emerge with his coaching badges or a decent coaching appointment after being yanked off the SE coaching set up almost 3 years ago (as suddenly as Pinnick foisted him on our SE) …..LMAOoo. Even his state team does not have the boldness yet to hire him as one of the coaches of Rivers United. LMAOOo

    Awon “We played in Europe for 20 years under several coaches, so that qualifies us to coach the SE” gang…..LMAOooo. See your mate is now a 1st team coach at an EPL club o.

    We will never stop steping on their toes, no matter whose ox is gored.

    Smelling hatred as usual. When slaves are still bowing down to their white master, they will condemn those who stand toe to toe with them.
