Ogunbote plays waiting game

Former Sunshine Stars' head coach, Gbenga Ogunbote, has told supersport.com that he will wait till the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) gets underway before deciding on his managerial future.

The 2012/13 season of the Nigeria top flight is expected to kick off this month but Ogunbote has turned down a number of offers from undisclosed clubs.

"Like I've always said, I'm not in a hurry to return to coaching or managing just yet. I have had a number of offers from Premier League clubs but most of them do not meet my expectation and that's why I'm in no hurry.

"But I'll wait to see how things turn out in the new season and then I will make my decision. The terms of contract must suit my expectation and must be right for a good environment," said Ogunbote.

The former Gateway FC trainer opted out of renewing his contract with Sunshine Stars after the 2011/12.

Ogunbote guided the Akure Gunners to back-to-back last four finish in the 2011 Caf Confederation Cup and 2012 Caf Champions League.

Sunshine Stars also came within touching distance of winning their first Nigerian league title during Ogunbote's tenure in the 2010/11 season when they finished two points behind eventual winners, Dolphins.
