Paul Aigbogun has quit his position as head coach/technical adviser of two-time CAF Champions League winners Enyimba just eight months into the relationship, has learnt.

The former Warri Wolves manager left his role almost a fortnight ago owing to dissatisfaction with the club’s management concerning his personal terms but Enyimba are yet to make an official statement on the matter.

Reports in the country have already suggested that the relationship between Aigbogun and certain members of the Enyimba hierarchy has not been pleasant leading to his departure.

Aigbogun is currently in London with his family, has been informed.

The reins to lead Enyimba’s coaching now appears to have fallen on the shoulders of Usman Abdallah who has played the role of acting head coach a few times whenever Aigbogun is away on international duties with the Nigeria Under-20s.

Abdallah was in charge of Enyimba’s last Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) game against Heartland which ended 0-0 and is likely to continue for the time being.

However an official of Enyimba who spoke to this week could not confirm the true picture of things concerning the status of Aigbogun.

“Mr Paul Aigbogun remains the head coach. There are no contrary words to say otherwise,” the Enyimba official said.
