Nigerian Professional Football League side, Kwara United, have parted company with their manager, John Obuh, according to the club.
“Kwara united fc has mutually agreed to part way with its technical adviser John Obuh following the not too impressive performance of the club in the Nigeria professional football league,” the club said in a statement.
Obuh’s sack comes after Ilorin based side dropped more points, following their 1-1 draw at home against El-Kanemi Warriors last weekend.
This led to a meeting where management of the club ultimately reached a decision to let the former national u-20 handler go, to ‘move the club forward.’.
“The two parties reached a compromise following a meeting facilitated by the Kwara state football association chairman Mallam Busari Ishola,” the statement stated further.
“The decision became necessary in view of the yearnings and aspirations of the stakeholders to move the club forward.
“Coach Obuh will be long remember in the history of the club as a passionate and committed coach. The management also wishes to use this medium to wish the out gone gaffer the very best in his future endeavors.”
Kwara United have only won three of their 12 games so far this season, losing seven with the remaining two ending in draws.
This has left them deeply rooted to the bottom of the table, on 11points, but they remain just two points away of safety.
The club also stated that Obuh’s replacement will be announced as soon as possible.
