Coach Ladan Bosso will earn five million Naira bonus should he qualify Abia Warriors FC to international football.
Bosso was yesterday presented as coach of newly promoted Abia Warriors after he was not given a new contract by Bayelsa United.
The former Nigeria U20 coach said that he will be paid a monthly salary of 1.5 million Naira after signing-on fee was abolished by the league.
He has signed a year’s contract with the Umuahia-based outfit who are set to debut in the Nigeria top flight in the new season.
Bosso has been one of the most nomadic coaches in the Nigeria league after he changed clubs in the last four seasons.
During that time he has handled Niger Tornadoes, Wikki Tourists, Kano Pillars and Bayelsa United.
Last season, he led Bayelsa to finish third and thus qualify to feature in this year’s CAF Confederation Cup.
The club’s Chairman, Emeka Inyama, said at the ceremony in Umuahia that Bosso was appointed to take over the reins of the club after a careful consideration of his pedigree.
“It is not a coincidence that this is happening today. We have a lot of confidence in Bosso and that he will take the club to new heights.
“He has done it in other clubs in the country and will do it again here,” he said.
Reacting, Bosso said that he was happy to identify with the Umuahia-based club.
“Nobody believed that I will be here today and this is happening because I share the same philosophy with the club’s chairman.
“The terms of the contract favour the two sides and as the Vice-Chairman of the Nigeria Football Coaches Association, I will be a role model for others,’’ he said.
Bosso assured the club’s fans of a good outing, adding that he was looking forward to starting in earnest on a positive note with his players.
