Shooting Stars Sports club management has elevated Chief Coach of the team Olumide Edith Agoye to the substantive position of Head Coach for the next football season.
He served as Chief Coach under 3SC former Technical adviser Fatai Amoo who was sacked this week.
The decision to elevate Agoye to the position of Head Coach was taken by the club management after an exhaustive interview session with several coaches.
Executive Chairman of the club, Mr Gbolagade Busari said the management settled for Agoye primarily because of his knowledge about the composition of the team and to maintain continuity in the development of the young players who will form the fulcrum of the new Shooting Stars.
“Majority of our players are from the feeders and to continue to inspire their development, we felt Agoye is in good position to do this,” Mr. Busari said in a statement issued on Thursday afternoon in Ibadan.
He further said the mandate given to the new Head Coach is to work assiduously to return the team to the Nigeria’s elite league – the Nigeria Professional Football League.
