The newly-appointed Technical Adviser of Sharks FC of Port Harcourt, on Tuesday said that the club was undergoing a re-building process, to help it get back on track.

Sharks currently occupies the last position on the 20-team Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) standings, with five points from the seven matches played so far.
“To reposition our club, we intend to put all the energy, time and everything you can think of to make us better, because we want to make our fans happy,’’ Ogunbote said.
He promised to bring his wealth of experience into the club, to get a formidable team that could lock horns with any team.
“I know it is a gradual process to transform the club from its present position to where it ought to be, but we would surely get there.
“The players are adhering to instructions and that is the ultimate in achieving a desired result that would put smiles on everyone’s faces. I don’t have a perfect team yet but I am hopeful that we will get it right soonest.
“I have been with these boys for a short while but one thing I can tell you is that there is a lot of work to be done,’’ he added.
The adviser assured that in spite of the club’s present position on the league table, relegation was out of the picture.
He said this was because the club was duty-bound to succeed at the end of the season.
Ogunbote, last season, led Sunshine Stars of Akure to the semi-finals of the African Confederation Cup.
