Former Sunshine Stars of Akure and league top scorer, Kabiru Alausa has commended the management of Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan for the internship opportunity giving him as he commences his coaching career. 

Alausa after retiring from active football veered into academics of football as a coach at the National Institute of Sports, Lagos and has been working on the career since leaving City of David (COD) FC, Lagos.

“It’s a new experience for me and I want to thank the management of Shooting Stars Sports Club for the opportunity to have my internship in Ibadan.

“I completed my programme at the National Institute for Sports and I’m with 3SC to learn more about coaching. Before coming to 3SC, I worked with Taiwo Oloyede at non-league side, Eko Akete, in the Lagos State Federation Cup,” he told

It would be recalled Alausa started his football at the top flight as a central defender at the defunct Julius Berger, but was converted to a striker by his former coach, Fatai Amoo, which became a turning point for him as he blossomed in front of goal.

Back in 2004, he finished as top scorer in the league with 13 goals for the “Glamour Boys”.

Apart from 3SC and COD, he has also played for Sunshine Stars as well as Heartland and was invited to the Super Eagles squad in 2008 for the CHAN 2009 qualifiers.
