Nigeria Premier League side, Sunshine Stars have announced the appointment of Samson Unuannel as the club’s new coach.
Unuannel is coming in to replace erstwhile trainer Kennedy Boboye who quit the Akure Gunners at the end of the 2014/15 season after he failed to grab a Caf Confederation Cup ticket for the Nigeria Professional Football League outfit.
Boboye announced his resignation two days after after a final day 0-0 draw against champions Enyimba at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.
“Samson Unuannel is the new coach of Sunshine Stars….. Welcome to Sunshine State,” Sunshine’s media officer, Wahab Bankole announced via his facebook account on Wednesday evening.
Until his appointment, Unuannel was without a club after he was sacked Kwara United manager following his promotion with Harmony Warriors which has again been relegated to the second tier division.
Sunshine will hope for better times with their new Coach even as they will rue their disappointing sixth-place on the NPFL log despite their bright which saw them occupying top spot for a couple of weeks
