Ogunbote’s first assignment in-charge of the Oluyole Warriors will be the Sunday’s NPFL match day 20 clash Akwa United at the Lekan Salami Stadium in Ibadan. 3SC ended the first stanza campaign on the 18th position on the log with 17 points.
According the team’s media manager, Jubril Arowolo, “Ogunbote said it’s good and happy to be back to 3SC as he appreciated the yearnings of the side’s teeming supporters to have him back.
“The coach said he was nicely treated at Giwa FC but have to leave the Jos Elephants because of the present circumstance.”
Arowolo added that Ogunbote is upbeat despite the precarious situation at 3SC and their position in the NPFL table.
“Ogunbote said 3SC are still formidable but added that some players will have to make way for new players aimed at fortifying the team for the challenges ahead.
“He assured 3SC will compete favourably as well as take their pride of place in the top-flight,” said Arowolo to supersport.com.
