Emmanuel Lionel Soccoia has resigned as coach of Kano Pillars citing contract violations, unpaid wages and lack of support.
Soccoia had been in the job for only five months.
Pillars have installed Ibrahim Musa to oversee today’s crucial Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) week 16 game against leaders Kwara United on Wednesday.
The French coach cited interf Ierence, non payment of salaries and poor working condition as the reasons for resigning his appointment.
“I wish to continue but the moment you started deciding who comes and goes in the team then I felt I am not needed anymore,” he wrote to Kano Pillars Chairman (Alhaji Surajo Yahaya Jambul).”
“I will be giving the team one week to provide my 5-month salaries of 25000 dollars, which is $5000 per month.”
The UEFA A Licensed coach lists Black Leopards FC, African Lyon, Dubai Cultural Sports Club, Cotonsport de Garoua, CF Mounana, AFAD Djékanou, CIFAS de Djeffa and Rapid de Mentonas his former clubs.
