Flying Eagles head coach Paul Aigbogun has revealed the reason behind his decision to walk out on his managerial job at Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) outfit Enyimba.
Aigbogun resigned as Enyimba head coach last week and he has attributed the decision to his inability to combine the work with the national team job.
In his words via footballlive.ng, Paul Aigbogun said: “Combining Enyimba and Flying Eagles jobs was taking its toll on me, so I had to let go of one to concentrate on the other. I’m taking a rest for now. I would be traveling to London in two or three days’ time to see my family.”
Paul Aigbogun leaves Enyimba at the top of Group C in the CAF Confederation Cup (CAFCC) following the 1-0 win over Ivorian side Williamsville on Matchday 3, which turned out to be his final game in charge of the Aba-based side.
His assistant Usman Abdallah has since been confirmed as Aigbogun’s replacement as Enyimba head coach.
Aigbogun will continue his job with the Flying Eagles having led the team to next year’s U20 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Niger Republic via a 6-1 aggregate win over Mauritania.
The top four countries from the tournament in Niger Republic will represent Africa at the 2019 FIFA men’s U20 World Cup in Poland.
