Gombe United completes Eguavoen deal

Eguavoen’s primary mission will be to lift the club out of the bottom of the league table.


The Glo Premier League side, Gombe United, has finally completed the recruitment of former Super Eagles gaffer, Austin Eguavoen, as the new Technical Adviser of the team.

The Savannah Scorpions, as Gombe United are fondly called, have also finalised the deal with another ex-international, Oladuni Oyekale, who is set to take over as the Chief Coach.

The contracts papers that will bind the two coaches to Gombe United till the end of the season were on Wednesday signed and the duo are
expected to get down to business earnestly ahead of the commencement of the second stanza of the League in the days ahead.

Club officials revealed that the government of Gombe State approved the signing of the new Technical Adviser because the club does not sit too pretty on the Premier League table at the end of the first round of the 2013/14 season.

Eguavoen’s primary mission will be to lift the club out of the bottom of the log even as the management board assured that they will give him all the support towards seeing that the club navigate out of the  relegation waters.

As part of other measures, Gombe United have also made adjustment in the players department by signing seven new players and dropping others based on the recommendation of the technical crew. These changes are meant to restructure the team for the better.
