Bukola suspend coach Allen
9 June 2011
Nigeria Premier League side Bukola Babes have suspended coach Festus Allen after they lost 2-0 at Enugu Rangers Wednesday.
“Allen has been suspended and his assistant, Kabiru Sulaiman, will now take charge of the club,” Bukola Babes team manager, Alloy Chukwuemeka, told MTNFootball.com.
Allen was given a three-match ultimatum to turn around the fortunes of the Ilorin club after Allen, who was elevated technical adviser following the departure of Erasmus Onuh in the opening weeks of the season, has failed to maintain the tempo achieved by the team in the first round of the campaign.
Several top stars departed for greener pastures during the mid-season break.
After hovering around the top five spots in the first round of the season, Bukola are now 11th on the table with 35 points from 26 matches.
