Gombe Utd Hands Manu Three-game Ultimatum

0

Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Gombe United, has given its Head Coach, Manu Garba, a three-match time limit to “improve on the team’s performance or face sanction”.
The Desert Scorpions have found themselves sitting in third from bottom in the NPFL ranking after returning to the top division this season following a three-year spell in the second tier, the Nigeria National League (NNL).

However, the Gombe club, after a review of their first 18 matches this season, decided to put Manu and his coaching team on their toes.
“The technical adviser (head coach), Manu Garba, OON, and his crew have been given ultimatum in the next three matches to improve on the team’s performance or face sanction,” Gombe United announced in a statement at the weekend.

Manu’s three-game ultimatum starts with home and away matches against NPFL champions Enugu Rangers before playing hosts to Katsina United.
The Scorpions have a chance to haul themselves out of the drop zone when they face Rangers in a rescheduled league match at home on Wednesday.
