By Adeboye Amosu:
Nigeria Professional Football League club Kwara United have appointed Abubakar Bala as their new technical adviser, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Bala takes over from former Flying Eagles head coach John Obuh who was relieved of his post on Monday following the Harmony Boys’ poor start to the season.
Obuh guided the Ilorin club back to the top flight after two seasons in the Bet9ja Nigeria National League but they have struggled to make an impact on their return.
The new technical adviser Abubakar, who is one of the youngest coaches in the NPFL, guided Niger Tornadoes to the final of the Aite Cup last year.
He was sacked by the club’s new management few weeks to the start of the current campaign and replaced with veteran tactician Erasmus Onuh.
Bala’s immediate task will be to improve the fortunes of Kwara United who occupy the last position in the NPFL table.
He will be unveiled on Wednesday at the conference room of the indoor sports hall of the Kwara Sports Complex.
