Bayelsa hook Bosso



Former Nigerian champions, Bayelsa United have announced the appointment of Isaa Ladan Bosso as the club’s technical adviser.

Bosso joins the Yenagoa club on a one-year contract following his departure from Nigeria Premier League (NPL) club, Wikki Tourists.

The deal between Bosso and Bayelsa United was sealed on Wednesday with the former Under20 national coach taking charge of the team’s friendly game against Federation Cup champions, Heartland on Saturday.

A member of management board of the club, Laye Julius who confirmed the development to supersport.com said Bayelsa United are convinced Bosso has the "right track record" to pilot the ship of the club in the 2012/13 season.

“We were alerted of Bosso’s availability after he left Wikki and we duly made our move for him. We believe he has the right track record to take us to our planned destination,” Laye told supersport.com.

The club chief also took the time to outline the objectives of the club in the coming season.

“We have been given a mandate by our sponsors to take the club to the continent this season. We have made a number of astute signings and we believe we will achieve our ambitions next season,” he said.

Founded in 2000, Bayelsa United were Nigeria champions in 2009.
