Why are top NPFL coaches at home Imama, Boboye, Obuh ?


These Coaches are class of their own with their remarkable achievement as a coach Imama won the league with Rangers 2016 and ever since then he has been in the headline of sound and technical prowess of the game , he is the current direct assistance to the head coach of Super Eagles one might think his technical savvy will be of good to the league.

Boboye has been a coach with difference having won a league for Plateau United after 35 years of Existence, he transform Plateau United completely as players jostle to be in line up for league matches as no player is guarantee of starting shirt which becomes his greatest weapon of winning the league 2017.

Not a suprise that five of his wards left for proverbial golden fleece, presently in Europe Peter Eneji, Emeka Umeh ,  Sunday Ugbede, Okemuite Odah , Rapheal Ayangwa.

All there players rightly mentioned are now playing in abroad .

 He is currently in the U 23 technical crew as an assistance coach. One might think two coaches in National sets up will able to value to the league .

 John Obuh is more or less a veteran of NPFL haven coach pillars , sharks , Rangers int, Niger Tornadoes, Kwara united .

He was the direct Boss of Imama and Boboye in Sharks Fc .

He was the head coach, Imama was his chief coach while Boboye was his assistant coach then.

 Coach john Obuh won the WAFU Cup after 33 years for Sharks as the head coach while coach Imama and coach Boboye was part of that glory as they are part of the technical crew of that historic achievement.

These three Coaches have broken records of ages yet no club at the moment. NPFL is gradually loosing hot value as clubs believes anyone can do the job now since it still requires logistics in every game play .

 I can authoritatively say the technical savvy of these three coaches in NPFL can never be undermined, with their rich  resumes and good managerial acumen which improve the league just like EPL without Pep Giadiola , Jose mouriho.

May be the answer is the high salary earn by these coaches the least earn salary by one of these coaches is 1.5 million naira per month .

 But most NPFL clubs are looking for N700-  thousand  to 1million naira as salary . A club in the south east even paid a Coach of one top league in Africa 400k per months too ridiculous.

As a common word  “Good food requires good money.”
