Eguavoen resigns as Sunshine Stars coach

Former Super Eagles coach Austin Eguavoen has quit his position as coach of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Sunshine Stars.

Eguavoen on Friday officially threw in the towel after just five matches in charge of the relegation threatened Akure-based team.

It was gathered that Eguavoen chose to step down from his position because he was unhappy with the working conditions at the Ondo State owned club.

There had been speculations surrounding Eguavoen’s future at the Akure club since Wednesday’s 2-1 home loss to league leaders Plateau United.

Already, Sunshine Stars have confirmed that they have parted ways with Eguavoen who has previously handled Enyimba, COD United, and Gombe United.

A statement from the club through its media officer Chris Okunnuwa read: “The Management of Sunshine Stars FC has received and accepted the disengagement notice of Coach Austin Eguavoen.

The Club appreciates the coach for his time with the club and wish him the best for the future.

In view of this development, Sunshine Stars FC Management has appointed the club former assistant coach, Akin Olowookere, as the Interim Head Coach.

The former junior international will be assisted by Coach Ogunderu Boye.

The appointment takes immediate effect”.
