AUDIO: Why I Returned To Enyimba – Paul Aigbogun

Paul Aigbogun has exclusively told why he returned to 7-time Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions, Enyimba as Technical Adviser for a second stint.

The former Warri Wolves coach was on Thursday announced as the new handler of the Aba Landlords, a club where he previously worked as an assistant to Salisu Yusuf and as head coach in 2016, leading Enyimba to the group stage of the CAF Champions League last year.

According to Aigbogun, Enyimba’s ambitions were responsible for his return to the club for a third stint.

“It’s a club (Enyimba) that I had a relationship with and we finished on a good note last time regarding our relationship,” he said.

“Here in Nigeria, it’s a club with great ambition which is in line with me; I’m very ambitious too as a coach. It is very important for me to join a club which also has that ambition in them,” Aigbogun disclosed.

The soft-spoken tactician is returning to Enyimba after leaving the club in October, 2016, and told that he used the break to upgrade his coaching badges.

“It was important for me to take some time out for a few months last time because I needed to really upgrade and re-activate and upgrade the licenses that I had,” the former FC Cape Town of South Africa coach stated. “It is important as a coach to continue to educate yourself.

“So the break out for a while, even though I was doing some stuff on and off in the UK (United Kingdom) and in America while I was away, kind off revitalized me and I am ready to go.”

Aigbogun is expected to lead Enyimba in their quest for success in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup as well as in the NPFL and Aiteo Cup next season.
