NPFL side, Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) have parted ways with veteran coach Fatai Amao following the club’s poor run of form that saw them relegated from the NPFL.
A statement made available on Monday in Ibadan confirmed that the club will have a new coach who will try to help the club’s make a quick return to topflight football even as the former technical adviser’s commitment and input to the team was very much appreciated.
Club’s Media Officer, Jubril Arowolo explained that the management arrived at the decision after reviewing the performance of the team in the NPFL last season, adding that the positions of other technical crew members are also under review.
“The management acknowledged the effort of Mr Fatai Amao to inspire the team during the failed season. We wish Mr. Amao success in his future endeavours as we will not forget his positive impact on the team,” Jubril said.
Amao who had previously coached the club from 2009 to 2011 was appointed coach in November 2016 as replacement for Gbenga Ogunbote who saved the club from relegation in the previous season.
