Boboye waves off Wikki rumours


By Abiodun Adele.

Former Akwa United coach, Kennedy Boboye, has dissociated himself from speculations linking him with the coaching job of Nigeria Professional Football League side, Wikki Tourists, The PUNCH reports.

The Wikki job became vacant after former handler, Kabiru Dogo, resigned his appointment on Tuesday after amassing only one point in four games.

Following Dogo’s exit, reports have linked the former Plateau United and Sunshine Stars coach with the Giant Elephants, as tweeted by league journalist, Taye Hassan, on Wednesday.

“Kennedy Boboye could be the next tactician to be in Wikki Tourists dugout as information is coming in from a close source in Bauchi,” Hassan posted.

However, Boboye waved off the speculation in a telephone interview with our correspondent.

“Anything you guys see, just conclude with it, I have been hearing this thing since yesterday (Tuesday),” Boboye said.

While Wikki Tourists have also confirmed the exit of Dogo, the club has put head coach Abdullah Adamu in charge of the squad.

After his spell with Sunshine Stars in 2015, Boboye won the league with Plateau United and Akwa United in 2017 and 2022 respectively, leaving both jobs the following season.
