Katsina United chairman Abdulsamad Badamasi has said coach Henry Makinwa is the right choice for the club and they will support him to succeed at the NPFL club.
Former Abia Warriors and ABS FC coach Makinwa has agreed a year’s contract with Katsina United.
He will be assisted by Bishir Sadauki, who has been with the team for more than a decade.
“It gives us great pleasure to welcome Henry Makinwa to Katsina United as head coach,” said Katsina United chairman Badamasi.
“Makinwa possesses fantastic knowledge and understanding of the game having coached clubs like ABS and Abia Warriors. He also played in the Nigeria league for many seasons before moving abroad to continue his playing career.
“I believe with his vast knowledge of the game as a coach and former player, we have made the right choice.
“We will do everything we can to ensure he has all the support required to be a huge success.”
‘The Changi Boys’ are expected to play some friendly games at home to check the depth of the team before embarking on a pre-season tour next week.
