Osun United FC Coach, Duke Udi, on Monday resigned his position as the head coach of the club, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
According to a statement by the club’s Media Manager, Tunde Shamsudeen, the coach’s resignation came as a shock to fans and players of the club.
“I have decided to resign from my position as head coach of Osun United Football Club.
“I deeply appreciate my time with the team and I want to thank all the fantastic people who make Osogbo a fantastic place to work for me,’’ he was quoted as saying in the letter.
Shamsudeen said the Management Committee of the team led by Mr Jimoh Olayemi held an emergency meeting after receiving Udi’s resignation letter.
The spokesman, who said the committee wished Udi the best in his future endeavours, added that the club would soon name a substantive head coach to fill the vacuum.
NAN reports that Udi was employed as head coach of the club at the end of the 2015/16 NNL season with the mandate to help promote the team to the NPL.
