The position of the new Technical Adviser was made known to Tide Sports by the club’s media officer, Confidence Idaa in an exclusive interview yesterday.
According to him, Obuh assured sponsors of the club and other stakeholders that he has the wand to save Sharks from an impending relegation on the 2009/2010 Globacom Premier League season.
Towards achieving this, Idaa said that the Technical Adviser has new tactical and technical depth to the game of the team.
Already, the team has been putting finishing touches to their preparation towards hosting Niger Tornadoes in tomorrow’s week 19 premier league fixture.
“I want to say that John Obuh is prepared and determined to take Sharks out of the relegation zone, because the team has all the potentials to play continental football next term but the problem is that they were yet to blend fully and play effectively as a team. But am sure that with Obuh, the team will definitely improve and climb out of relegation zone” he said.
Idaa explained that the new Technical Adviser has been able to bring a new style to the club’s play pattern, adding that the players were happy over his training style.
