Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side Abia Warriors has announced it has agreed a deal for former FC Ifeanyiubah Brazilian coach Rafael Everton to lead the Umuahia-based club in the new season.
In a statement signed by club spokesman Igwe Onuoha, said the Brazilian coach, who led FC Ifeanyiubah to an historic Federation Cup triumph a year ago, will be their new head coach.
Everton quit FC Ifeanyiubah after he was redeployed to the team’s academy following a major shake-up.
Last season, the Umuahia-based club was headed by coach Abdullahi Biffo. It barely escaped relegation.
