Kabiru Suleiman Dogo, former Nassarawa United coach, has joined Sunshine Stars of Akure a one year deal as the new coach of the Club replacing Henry Abiodun who quit the role after a disappointing finish last season.
Dogo who was also unveiled at the Ondo State Football Agency’s Board/Conference Room on Tuesday will be assisted by coach Kayode Julius, Sulaiman Kamil and Busuyi Olu during his short stay with the Akure based side.
In his welcome speech, he noted: “Sunshine Stars is a big Club in Nigeria, but some many other big teams wanted me, so it is fate and God’s will that I will be here today to work with Sunshine Stars. The love towards me from the people during the negotiations was overwhelming and the Chairman made me believe in this project.
“My objective now is to work and make this union a successful one. I appreciate the effort of last season’s coaches, Duke Udi and Henry Abiodun I will be building on their works. Sunshine is a good side we just need to work together and with that, we can be successful.”
Dogo parted ways with the Solid Miners after five seasons to seek out new challenges with his new appointment. The club has an option to renew after the one year elapses.
