Mighty Jets unveils Usman as technical adviser

Mighty Jets FC of Jos on Monday unveiled Coach Adams Usman as the team’s Technical Adviser alongside other newly appointed coaches.

Chief Alexander Wukari, Chairman, Mighty Jets, charged the technical adviser and his crew to take the 1972 league winners back to the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) at end of next season.

It will be recalled that Wukari had last week sacked all the coaches of the Nigerian National League (NNL) side and advertised their positions.

The chairman said that the club was confident that the technical crew would take the club to the promise land.

“We know that there may be challenges but we are ready to give you 100 per cent support.

“Don’t hesitate to contact us immediately you encounter any challenge as we are ready to listen to you.


“The management board will not tolerate anything less than the best which is to return the club to the first tier football in the country, he said.

He appreciated the Plateau Government for the unalloyed support the club was enjoying from it.

Usman in his remarks said that he accepted the job in good faith and was ready to achieve the target set for him.

The technical adviser said that he would work closely with the technical crew as well as the management to achieve the target which is achievable.

“The target is achievable considering my experience with Ranchers Bees of Kaduna, Sunshine Stars of Akure and most recently, Nasarawa United.

“NNL is a terrain that I am very conversant with; I believe I can surmount the challenges,’’ he assured the club’s management.

The helmsman, however, said that he and technical crew alone could not achieve the target without the support of the management, the fans and the media.

He said that he would not hesitate to recruit the services of new players if need be.

“I believe in continuity, we are going to work with the crop of players we met on ground if they can give us what we need.

“But anyone who fails to meet up with the standard that will help us to achieve our target, we won’t hesitate to show him the exit door,’’ he added.

Those unveiled alongside Usman are the Coach Dairo Adeyemi, the Chief Coach and other assistant coaches.
