Abdulazeez Mohammed, who resigned from his role on Saturday night, has been replaced as Kwara United’s new technical adviser by Kabir Sulaiman Dogo, a former Wikki Tourists of Bauchi handler.
According to the club, the appointment is effective right away.
The club’s chairman, Kumbi Titiloye, told the media team in a message that it was urgent to name a new coach because keeping the current one in place would be detrimental to the team. He called the time crucial.
Kwara United has only defeated Akwa United FC once under Abdulazeez, drawn twice with Gombe United and Shooting Stars Sports Club, and lost four times in the Matchday Seven of the previous Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL).
According to Abdulazeez, “I have to step aside in view of the consistent run of poor results.
“The potentials are there for us to do well, but its unfortunate that things are going the wrong way.
“I am stepping aside. I wish the club the best of luck in the ongoing season.
Since the club has accepted his departure, according to Kumbi Titiloye, there is no need to allow for a vacancy.
“For this reason, Coach Dogo, who recently resigned from his position as manager of Bauchi’s Wikki Tourists FC, has been hired.
“We have accepted his resignation, as he has accepted full responsibility for the club’s poor run.
“We cannot continue like this, despite the commitment of the government, the management and stakeholders.
Following the move of Coach Usman Abdullahi Biffo to the USA following the expiration of his three year contract, Coach Abdulazeez Mohammed was hired on an interim basis with 12 matches to conclude the 2021/2022 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.
After the 2021–2022 season, Kwara United introduced him as the new technical adviser.
Before departing Katsina United, Mohammed landed on the Nigerian coaching scene in 2020 and helped the team gain membership in the NPFL.
He oversaw Kwara United FC’s participation in the CAF Confederation Cup competition, and as soon as the team was eliminated, he started making plans for the current NPFL season.
