Newly promoted Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Warri Wolves have announced the appointment of Ngozi Elechi as their new head coach, Completesports.com reports
The appointment of Elechi was made public on Thursday by a top official of Warri Wolves who added the new coach will be unveiled next weekend.
“Former coach of Go Round FC and Yobe Desert Stars, coach Ngozi Elechi, has joined Warri Wolves as the clubs new technical adviser,” Azuka Chiemeka, an official of Warri Wolves stated.
“Elechi will be unveiled next weekend.”
The onetime Jigawa Golden Stars midfield maestro is taking over from Kester Ojo, who guided the Delta State government-owned team from the Nigeria National League (NNL) back to the NPFL.
Warri Wolves were relegated from the elite league in 2016 but they sealed their comeback with a victory over Dynamite FC in the recent NNL play-offs.
He will will look to prove his critics wrong as he takes over at the Warri side because his stints at the last two teams he handled, Go Round FC and Yobe Desert Stars proved quite challenging.
He led Go Round from the NNL to the NPFL, but was disengaged as the Omoku side found life in the top league very tasking and finally got relegated under his successor, Willy Udube. His rescue mission at struggling Yobe Stars did not go well as the club was also relegated.
