NPFL21: Markudi Trip Could Determine The Future Of Coach Imama Amapakabo


It is not looking gloomy and bloomy for Coach Imama Amapakabo at the moment as he could be shown the exit door after a poor start to life as manager of Abia Warriors football club, reports.

The Warriors have lost four of their opening six matches of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) 2020/2021 season, before picking up just two points in two games out of possible nine in the three matches ultimatum given by the Club’s management.

Imama Amapakabo who won the league title with Rangers International in the 2016/2017 Seasons ending their thirty three years wait without a league title, has been struggling to lift his side despite bringing in top quality addition to the side during the window.

Amongst the top signings made by the gaffer during the transfer window are, goalkeeper Vincent Edafe and Olorunleke Ojo from Dakkada and Sunshine Stars respectively, Nzube Anaezemba from Lobi stars, Mustapha Jubreel from Mighty Jet, as well as Godwin Obaje from Js Kairouan and a promising young Dennis Kingsley from Odion Ighalo Academy, but yet to win a single game.

A trip to Markudi for their week seven clash against Lobi Stars will determine the future of the former Super Eagles assistant coach, as he could get sacked should he fail to pick up maximum points in Markudi.

The former Rangers International tactician was appointed coach of Abia Warriors football club July 2020 after he penned down a two year contract with the Abia state government owned club. During his unveiling the gaffer nursed an ambition of winning the league title and qualifying for the continent, an ambition which currently seems to be off the pedal with relegation battle on sight.
