Ex-Flying Eagles of Nigeria footballer Nduka Ugbade has now become the first coach to be relieved of his job after he officially parted ways with newly promoted NPFL club Remo Stars Football Club
According to statement released by Remo Stars Football Club on their Official website, it says
Remo Stars Football Club have parted ways with Technical Adviser Nduka Ugbade after negotiations for a new contract broke down.The 47-year-old tactician was part of Nigeria national under-20 football team at the 1989 FIFA World Youth Championship that placed second and won silver medals in Saudi Arabia. Nigeria lost to Portugal in the final match, but Ugbade and his teammates were the toast of the spectators after posting spectacular wins over hosts Saudi Arabia, highly favoured United States, and the USSR. Against the USSR the Nigerian team recovered from a 4-0 deficit to level 4-4 with Ugbade scoring the fourth before Nigeria won on penalties. This win is fondly referred to in Nigerian football history as the "Dammam Miracle"
Negotiations with the tactician broke down this evening as both parties couldn't reach an agreement over a contract renewal.
