Ladan Bosso, a former coach of the Nigerian U-20 men national football team has arrived Yola the Adamawa state capital to seal a deal of becoming the head coach of the Adamawa united football club.

Bosso who arrived the Yola international airport was received by members of the Nigeria Coaches Association and some fans of the Yola based club.

While speaking to journalist on his arrival, coach Bosso said ” I’m happy to be here. After serious discussions between me and the club’s chairman precisely, I deemed it necessary to come and see what is on ground. After seeing what is on ground I will now look at the possibility, because the target of the club that is from government determines the demand to the technical crew. So I’m here to see what is in ground so that we look at the way to go.”

The much experienced Bosso pride himself as a grassroots expert and assured that he will use that experience to cause a turnaround in the team.

“I’m a coach that always go for the grassroots programme and that is the kind of thing that Adamawa united is looking for,” he said.

When asked of the chances of him signing to take over as the head coach of the Adamawa United football club, Bosso said “If I’ve not made up my mind I wouldn’t come. I’ve only here for formalities.

“We have discussed the issue of facilities with the chairman and I’ve given him some options. We are part of the system, we know how to handle it because I just need to watch some of the training facilities and know how to communicate the office and I think with my relationship with the office I think we should be able to get something for the state.

“If we have the means even if I call players from Enyimba they will be here, but the most important thing is that I will look at the players on ground first. We cannot drop all of them but we can drop about 35 to 40% of the former players then after that we will now know the positions we should focus on screening and that is what I’m here for.”

Chairman of the Adamawa state coaches association and also a former coach of the Nigerian female national football team, Justine Madugu who received coach Bosso said they are excited to have a man with Bosso’s experience to accept to come and handle Adamawa united.

” For us to achieve success we need to have a good team. For now with what the chairman is doing he is trying to raise a good team that can help in ensuring that what ever goal that the team would have set for us we will be able to achieve that goal. Bringing Ladan Bosso in and a lot of structural changes going on in the team will bring about the much desired change that all of us are aspiring for as far as Adamawa united is concern,” coach Justine said.

He is confident that the government will give them the necessary support and also allow them the freedom to operate without interference. “I want to believe that the government has very good intentions because if you look at the calibre of people appointed to restructure the team and bring about the change we are talking would not have been possible in the past. But with the current crop of people on the ground I believe so much that changes will be made and a lot will be achieved giving all the necessary support that the team will require.”

Coach Bosso will be the first high rated coach to manage the Adamawa united football which was wallowing in relegation waters before the 2019,2020 football season was cut short due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Having successfully managed the Nigerian national teams to different tournaments on the African continent and on the global stage as well as some top flight clubs in Nigeria, the expectations on him to succeed is enormous.

Coach Bosso also had a fulfilling run with the likes of Kano Ppillars, Wikki Tourist of Bauchi, Abia Warriors of Aba, Gombe united, Elkanemi Warriors of Maiduguri, FC Ifeanyi Uba and Bayelsa United where he took them to the continental stage.
