Plateau United Coach Denies Rejecting Under- 23 Coaching Job

Head coach of reigning Nigeria Professional Football League champions, Plateau United Football Club of Jos, Kennedy Boboye on Monday denied insinuations making the rounds that he turned down the country’s under 23 national team job.

Boboye, who spoke through the Media Officer of the Club, Albert Dakup, explained that, if for any reason, he would have rejected the offer right from the day the announcement was made.

The former Abia Warriors Head Coach, who was appointed as one of the Assistant Coaches of the national team said, “the report exists only in the realm of the author’s imagination”.

According to him, “It is an honour to serve my country in that capacity; I wonder where these unscrupulous persons got this unfounded and baseless report.

The Coach advised members of the fourth estate of the realm to always cross-check their facts before going to press in order not to feed the public with half truth.

While appreciating the media for their support, the Coach said his doors were widely open at anytime they needed clarifications on issues regarding him and the club.

He appealed to Nigerians for support as the team prepares to face USM Algiers of Algeria in the return leg of the CAF confederations cup play-offs next week.
