Akwa United’s loss to Enyimba at home has claimed its first casualty as the Technical Adviser, Maurice Cooreman, has been instructed to go on an indefinitely leave.
A letter from the Chairman’s office on Monday asked the Technical Adviser to proceed on leave while his assistant, Ere Dokubo, and the rest of the technical crew have been given a three match ultimatum to “deliver or be fired”.
The Management considered the loss “one too many, especially the unacceptable dropping of eight precious points at home and a dent on the league title aspirations of the club”.

Unconfirmed reports also have it that the players have also come under the axe with their salaries to be halved while six of them are candidates of the transfer market for declining productivity and “act unacceptable of professionals”.
“We have the best welfare package in the country because we do not owe the players any salary or bonus. They don’t have any excuse not to perform,” a management staff said.
Akwa United have dropped from the precious fifth position on the league table last week to tenth and are traveling to Lagos this weekend for an away match against MFM FC.
