Nigeria Professional Football League side, Kwara United have confirmed that they have parted ways with coach John Obuh.

Obuh, has been the technical advisor of the state darling team for the past two years having replaced Tunde Abdulrahman after their dismal performance that saw the team relegated during that time to the National League.

And on this Monday afternoon, Kwara issued a statement confirming that the club has reached an agreement to terminate Obuh’s contract citing un-impressive performance in the top-flight league.

“Kwara United and John Obuh have come to an agreement to terminate his contract as the assistant coach of the club with effect from 12 March 2018.

“Both parties have signed a separation agreement, the terms of which are confidential. The club thanks John for his contribution and wish him well (in) his future endeavours,” Kwara stated.

Obuh will be long remember in the history of the club as a passionate and committed coach. His first stint with the club was in 2008/2009 where he lead the team from the National League to the Premier League.

His performance with Kwara United in 2009 earned him national U-17 team coaching opportunity. He also graduated from there to coach the U-20 national team, the Flying Eagles.

Kwara State Football Association led by Chairman Mallam Busari Ishola have assured the teeming fans and supporters of the club that a substantive Technical Adviser would be named as soon as possible so as not to create vacuum.
