The 54-year-old ex-Nigerian international, who currently holds a German Elite licenses as well as the UEFA coaching license, will head the development of the academy, as he will bring to bear his wealth of experience to the academy, having served as an assistant coach at Northwest youth team before he was later appointed as their Manager. He also managed BV Essen, a German Sixth tier club.

Upon assumption of the office, his task would include identifying and raising talents in our academy that may eventually play with the VFC first team, compete favourably for first team spots in elite clubs across the globe but most importantly, to ensure the holistic development of our students and prepare them for the demands of the future.

Andrew who keenly contested for the position against a Spaniard and a Dutch, was unanimously selected by the recruitment panel as the preferred, due to his rich football background as both a player and coach. The recruitment Panel noted that apart from being an excellent coach, Andrew will be a perfect role model for our young players here at the academy.

Speaking on his appointment, Andrew said ” I am excited to be joining a Club with such passionate supporters and visionary leadership. I want to thank the Management of Vandrezzer Football Club for giving me the opportunity to join in building the Academy. We would work together to mentor, impact discipline, encourage the right ethics, values, winning culture and above all, the Vandrezzer way of doing things. I look forward to resuming at the academy within the coming weeks”.

The Lions of Naija are glad to have Andrew Uwe on board and we wish him a successful stay with us.

    This is the way to go.This is where we should channel our discussions and deliberation.Rather than blame Rohr for what is not we should channel our attention on development of our grass root football and our league.The way this Vandressa fc is going it seem they want to revolutionalize our league and make it more competitive and with the appointment of an ex international the sky will surely be a stepping stone.

    This is the way forward. This is a club in Akwa Ibom state trying to meet international standard. Others want to sit back and blame rohr as if it was rohr that crumble our football at U17, U20, U23 and CHAN eagle. They want to behave as if rohr is LCM chairman, as if rohr is the one running the dead Nigerian league. How many clubs have academy in Nigeria? Everyone is lazy about the sport looking for rohr head to sacrifice on the alter of their mediocrity.
