Duke Udi set to replace Eguavoen at Sunshine

Sunshine Stars are reportedly  on the verge of   signing Osun United coach Duke Udi  as  their new  manager.

The post became vacant following the sudden resignation of former Super Eagles coach Austine Eguavoen recently.

Our correspondent learnt on Sunday that the Ondo State Football Agency had concluded contract negotiations with  former Nigeria midfielder Udi to take over the reins at the Akure Premier League side, who are currently battling for survival.

According to the source, Udi  might  be unveiled this week.

He said, “The ODSFA decided to go  for Duke Udi after Eguavoen left. He was expected to come to Akure to put pen to  paper for Sunshine on Sunday  but he said he wanted to pick  up one or two things in Osogbo. Hopefully he will  be unveiled this week.”

The source explained that the new coach had been given the task of saving the side from relegation.

However, spokesman for  Sunshine  Chris Okunuwa said he was not aware of such a development.

“I don’t have any information on that,” Okunuwa said.

Sunshine  were recently banished  to Ijebu Ode to play their home games behind closed doors  by  the League Management Company following the unruly behaviour of their supporters during their match against Plateau United at the   Akure  Stadium.

They defeated  Gombe United 2-1 in their first game at the Dipo Dina Stadium in  Ijebu Ode on Sunday.
