Remo Stars Football Club have confirmed the appointment of Daniel Ogunmodede as Nduka Ugbade’s number two after Uche Okagbue ended his two years association with the Ogun State based side.
Ogunmodede who joined the Sky Blue Stars at the start of the 2014/15 season as an assistant and youth team coach will be promoted from his current position to the head coach of the club.
“Daniel’s qualities are that he has the experience of the top-level game,” Team manager Yinka Samuel said. “He has managed here, he knows our football philosophy and therefore there will be a continuity. We always want to give an advantage to people who know how we work, how we want to coach.”
Ogunmodede who will be assisting Nduka Ugbade in the Nigeria Professional Football League 2016/17 season has described his appointment as “an absolute privilege”.
“It is more than excitement, it is an absolute privilege and an honour,” Ogunmodede told RSFC Media.
“I know it requires a lot and with my wealth of experience at the club I remain positive.
“It’s a bigger stage for us in the Premier League and am keen to do my very best to ensure we have a good debut season.”
Ugbade added: “I have always felt it is important to have people around who understand what this great club is all about.”
“With Daniel joining the first-team staff, it ensures we carry forward our traditions and approach in a consistent way.
“I am looking forward to working closely with Daniel and I wish the club every success.”
