Former Super Eagles midfielder, Garba Lawal, has said that Enyimba FC have the right to sack coach Kadiri Ikahana despite him winning trophies for the team.

The champions decided against renewing the veteran coach’s contract after the expiration of his oneyear deal mid-November despite him leading them to the league title.

The former General Manager of Kaduna United FC, said the coach should know the league champions reserved the right to either renew the deal or part company with him. Lawal who stated this in an exclusive interview with our correspondent advised Ikahana to move on.

He said such situation was part of football and did not diminish his career in any way. “Since he signed a one year contract, he should realise that the agreement could be renewed or terminated. I will advise him to take it as part of football . He is a good coach and could land a good job again,” he said.

The 63 year old, who led Enyimba to a CAF Champions League title in 2003 returned to the side and helped the club secure a record 7th League title last season, after winning the FA Cup in his first season.
