Remo Stars have appointed Kennedy Boboye as the club’s new coach, bringing the 45-year-old back to coaching three months after leaving Plateau United.
The club have announced that the former Nigeria U20 international has replaced Fatai Osho, who resigned on Thursday.
Boboye left Plateau United at the end of last season, after his two-year contract expired. In his first season at the Jos club, he guided the team to the league title.
Speaking at his official unveiling, the former Sunshine Stars boss said, “It has been a wonderful welcome for me since I came, from the President of the club to the management and players.”
“It’s a new challenge, we’ve just discussed few hours before this unveiling and I think we are good to go.”
Remo Stars have only just regained promotion to the top flight. Despite this, Boboye believes the Ikenne club can win the league this season.
“The team has a target and it’s for us to play in the continent and if everybody put their hands on deck I believe it is doable. We can as well repeat what happened in Plateau State here with Remo Stars.”
“The players here are young and they are willing to work and get their names written in gold, we have some experienced players, including the backroom staffs.
“The target is for us to win the league and playing in the continent, which is doable like I said — and the management is going to do everything to move the team up as they have been doing; and at the end, we’ll find ourselves at the top with hard work.”
Boboye, according to a club statement, will be assisted by the club’s Director of Youth Development, Daniel Ogunmodede.
