Emetole still searching for club



Former El-Kanemi Warriors’ coach, Kelechi Emetole has said he is yet to secure a club for the coming league season.

Emetole quit the Maiduguri-based side for personal reasons at the end of the 2011/2012 season after he secured the side promotion to the elite league.

The former coach of Heartland said discussions are still going on with lots of clubs.

“(I'm) not yet with any club, as I’m still discussing with few clubs, hopefully something positive will come up, at least, from one of the clubs.

“Of course, I won’t rush into agreement with any club, I must be sure what they want and their readiness to back it up before I endorse any paper.

“I’m interested in a team that will appreciate my worth and the value I’ll bring to the team,” he said to supersport.com.

The former Spartans player however would want the persons involved in the NPL face-off to quicken action towards their resolution so as to give room for the commencement of the new season.

“The crisis is an ill wind that blows nobody any good; I’ll want the parties to sheath their swords and allow reason and national interest to prevail. The league is behind schedule and shouldn’t be further dragged down,” he said.

Within the Week about 18 club managers met at Abuja and resolved to sack the NPL board. They subsequently set up a six-man interim committee headed by Sunshine Stars top shot, Mike Idoko to oversee the affairs of the league pending when an election would be held.
