El-Kanemi Warriors FC on Wednesday announced that Ladan Bosso would not be returning as the club manager when the new Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) resumes.
Bosso joined the Maiduguri-based outfit in the 2014/15 season when they played away from home in Kano and Katsina as a result of the heightened activity of Boko Haram insurgents that ravaged most of Borno State.
The club finished sixth on the log last season, an improvement from their 8th position in his first season when he arrived from Abia Warriors to take over from late Kelechi Emeteole.
Prince Anthony Obaseki, the club’s media manager announced the disengagement to www.npfl.ng saying: "You are aware that the state governor recently approved the reconstitution of the board of the club from five to ten-member board and they were charged to make sure the club performed better than last season. The new board has in their wisdom decided it is time to have a new man as the technical head.
"Our relationship with Bosso was cordial and we thank him for his services and wish him best of luck," Obaseki concluded.
When contacted, Bosso also confirmed the development and expressed deep appreciation to the club’s management and supporters for the solidarity he enjoyed from them throughout his stay. He admitted he would have loved to stay and continue with his project but regretted that the situation is different.
Bosso said he is now looking for offers from other clubs that may need his services. He looked back at his tenure with the club and described their relationship as very cordial.
In his words, "I enjoyed a very good relationship with the club and I am happily leaving at this time.
"The present squad of El-Kanemi is my project, I would have loved to continue and stabilize the team for better outings but situations on ground will not avail that.
"Before I came no single player from Maiduguri (Borno) was named in a starting line-up, but today I can proudly say no match was played last season with less than seven home boys.
"Last season nobody gave us hope but we almost got a continental ticket. My coaching philosophy is that of developmental football. I wish the club the best of luck in all their outings," Bosso concluded what seemed his valedictory."
