Published on: 13 March 2018

Nigeria Professional Football League outfit Kwara United have announced they have parted ways their technical adviser John Obuh,according to Completesportsnigeria.com

The management of the Harmony Boys according to a press statement made available to CSN by media officer of the club Waheed Bibire took the decision following the team’s poor run of form in the NPFL this season.

Kwara United are currently last in the table with 11 points from 12 games.

The club hierarchy handed Obuh a three-match ultimatum to turn the fortunes of the team around following a 1-0 home defeat against Rivers United on match day 10.

The Ilorin club have however recorded one defeat and a draw since the ultimatum.

Obuh, who once handled Nigeria’s U-17 and U-20 teams, last game in charge of Kwara United was Sunday’s match day 12 game against El-Kanemi Warriors which ended in a 1-1 draw.

He guided the club back to the top flight last term after two seasons in the Bet9ja Nigeria National League.

He is the second coach to be relieved of his duties in the NPFL in this campaign after Niger Tornadoes sacked veteran tactician Erasmus Onu earlier in the season.

The club is expected to appoint a new technical adviser in the coming days with former Niger Tornadoes coach Abubakar Bala said to be their primary target.
