Duke Udi quits Osun Utd

Former Nigeria international Duke Udi has resigned from his head coach role at second tier side Osun United.

Reports in Nigeria already suggest that Udi is being lined up to take up the head coach role at Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side Sunshine Stars, but the former 3SC man has given no hint about his next destination.

Also, the hierarchy at Sunshine Stars have remain mum over Udi replacing another ex-Nigeria international Austin Eguavoen who left the head role at the Akure Gunners earlier this month.

Duke tendered his resignation to the Nigeria National League (NNL) side on Monday and was only full of thanks for the opportunity to work with the Omoluabi Giants.

“I have decided to resign from my position as head coach of Osun United Football Club.

“I deeply appreciate my time with the team and I want to thank all the fantastic people who make Osogbo a fantastic place to work for me,” said Udi.

Osun United management quickly held an emergency meeting on Monday following Udi's resignation. The Osun club are expected to name a head coach in a matter of days.
