Yobe Desert Stars have announced the appointment of Taiye Yusuf as their new Technical Adviser, reports Completesports.com.
Yusuf replaces the sacked Ngozi Elechi, according to the Sporting Director of the club, Abdurahman Ago.
Elechi was relieved as head coach of the team after an unimpressive campaign in the league Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) this season.
Ago who announced the appointment on Stars day noted that Yusuf was preferred due to his experience with the team having served as an assistant coach to the previous two coaches.
“He has acquired a lot of experience and I am sure he would pass this across to the players,” Ago told the media in a press conference.
“I call on the players to give him their maximum support for us to get the result we want. The club has made those decisions in its best interest and we expect absolute cooperation from all in the club, from the players to the remaining part of the technical crew.”
Yobe Stars are currently bottom in the NPFL Group B with 10 points from 12 games. They face Gombe United away in their next fixture this weekend.
