Posted : 25 August 2023
Nigeria's representatives to the 2023/2024 CAF Champions League, Enyimba International FC of Aba have secured the services of former Heartland FC’ as well as Abia Warriors’ Coach, Chijioke Osuagwu.
Enyimba FC, Chairman, Nwankwo Kanu said he was beefing up both on the level of technical bench and the playing staff, for their current Champions League and the upcoming league campaigns.
An official with the “Aba Elephants” as Enyimba are called, confirmed Wednesday, that Osuagwu has joined the team after his appointment letter has been signed.
Osuagwu was also sighted as Enyimba had their first walkout at the Aba Stadium on Thursday, after returning from their first-leg CAF Champions League game in Libya.
Known to have produced many grassroot players who went ahead to represent Nigeria locally and internationally, Osuagwu later made history by qualifying Abia Warriors to the Premier League for the first time after many years of unsuccessful efforts.
He was also part of the technical staff that qualified Heartland FC for many continental outings as well as featured in them.
Osuagwu was also in charge when Busdor FC of Port Harcourt narrowly missed promotion to the Premier League.
