Former Flying Eagles Coach, John Obuh has emerged as the latest managerial casualty in the Nigeria Professional Football League following the announcement on Monday by Kwara United that they have parted ways with the gaffer.

In a press statement on Monday, Kwara United said they had to part ways with Obuh following the not too impressive performance of the club since gaining promotion from the NNL

A statement signed by the media officer of the club Abdul Waheed Bibire on behalf of the clubs’ President, Oladimeji Ladi Thompson said the two parties reached a compromise following a meeting facilitated by the Kwara state football association chairman Busari Ishola.

The statement further explained that the decision became necessary in view of the yearnings and aspirations of the majority to move the club forward.

Despite the sacking, Kwara United maintain that Coach Obuh will be long be remembered in the history of the club as a passionate and committed coach.

The management of the club also wished Obuh the very best in his future endeavors.

It is understood that a substantive technical adviser would be named soonest to avoid creating a vacuum with the exit of Obuh.

Kwara United are presently occupying the bottom spot in the NPFL with a paltry 11 points from the 12 matches played so far this season.
