Former Enyimba of Aba head coach Usman Abdallah says he was eager to leave the club...
As we’ve sometimes seen in football, Abdallah’s head coaching opportunity came after he served as an assistant before the head coach left to open up the job - namely Paul Aigbogun.
The tenure was a success as Abdallah finished in the CAF Confederation Cup last four while also winning the NPFL title - but he was then released after failing to make the CAF Champions League group stage.
“I’m not disappointed, in fact, I was looking forward to leaving and I even offered to leave at the time,” he said to Brila.
“I don’t think there’s something to win over there again because I don’t think we can win the continent, yes I can win the league but the one I won no one even say thank you, so I was only thinking about winning on the continent,” he told www.brila.net.
He added: “I don’t think Enyimba is ready to win on the continent, they are not near ready to win on the continent.
“On the financial side, two days later, I was offered something more than what they paid me so I’m not disappointed,” Abdallah said about his move to Wikki Tourists.
