Enyimba deny row amongst coaches



Six-time Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) club, Enyimba have moved to deny reports of a clash of egos among members of the side's coaching crew.

Former Super Eagles assistant coach,Salisu Yusuf leads the club's coaching staff that also includes Imama Amapakabo and Paul Aigbogun.

Aigbogun was formerly in charge of NPFL club, Wolves while Amapakabo briefly held the reins at Sharks.

With such stellar names in the Enyimba dugout, there were whispers in some quarters that the three men would struggle to get along especially with Amapakabo and Aigbogun expected to work as Yusuf's assistants.

"There's no such thing as a row or battle for supremacy amongst the coaches. It is true our coaches are accomplished names in the business but they all get along perfectly," media chief of Enyimba, Farrel Allaputa told supersport.com.

Assistant coach, Amapakabo also spoke about the camaraderie enjoyed by the three men predicting that their combined years of experience in the game would help the People's Elephants amass silverware this season.

"In the real sense of coaching, there's nothing like a head or tail. At Enyimba, we have a consortium of coaches that work well together.

"We have all worked as heads of the technical crew at our previous clubs but its actually a good thing because it means we will use that experience to help Enyimba win titles this season," Amapakabo explained.

Enyimba currently sits in 10th position on the NPFL log with 12 points from 9 matches.
