“This coach we are unveiling is a coach with pedigree and experience that could take us to Eldorado.

“He is a coach that can return us to the continent. Allow me to present to you, Coach Fatai Osho.

“The coach has also worked with Remo Stars, Enyimba FC, Rivers United FC, and we believe he is here to win laurels.

“I can assure you that we are going to work harder to achieve results,” Osho said.
