Enyimba dismiss link to Konadu

Nigerian Professional League side, Enyimba International FC have denied reports linking them to Ghana’s Wafu Cup winning coach Maxwell Konadu.

Reports surfaced in the local media claiming Enyimba were keen on hiring Konadu whose Ghana Black Stars B side defeated Nigeria 4-1 in the Wafu Cup final on Sunday at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

But Enyimba’s Jude Anyadufu has dismissed the report saying the former African champions are not in the market for a coach.

“We are satisfied with our coach, so I don’t know where that story is coming from. Ignore it, there is no truth in it,” Anyadufu said as quoted by Guardian Nigeria.

Enyimba finished third in the just ended Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) and will compete in the CAF Confederation Cup this season.

The reports had claimed that Enyimba have ‘put up an audacious bid to sign Konadu after his show of tactical brilliance in the just ended WAFU competition.’

Hyping Konadu’s credential, the report said the coach has redeemed his image by leading the home-based team to win the regional competition. It added that the former Asante Kotoko coach had his credibility and competence questioned after an embarrassing home defeat by Burkina Faso last month.

“Enyimba’s officials have already made contact with the coach but will fly to Ghana to hold further talks. The former Ghana international is most likely to take the job given that he has been demoted as the first assistant of Ghana’s senior national team,” it said.
