Enyimba International FC of Aba, the reigning champions of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), have brought on board Chijioke Osuagwu, a former coach of Heartland FC and Abia Warriors. 

This strategic move is part of Enyimba's ongoing efforts to bolster their technical bench and playing staff for both their current Champions League campaign and the upcoming league seasons.

The team, now under the leadership of former Nigerian international Nwankwo Kanu, is focused on strengthening its position in the football arena. An official representative of the "Aba Elephants," as Enyimba are affectionately known, confirmed on Wednesday that Osuagwu's appointment to the coaching staff had been finalized and his letter of appointment had been signed.

Osuagwu was also observed alongside Enyimba during their first training session at the Aba Stadium on Thursday. This training session followed the team's return from their CAF Champions League first-leg game in Libya.

Chijioke Osuagwu is renowned for his role in nurturing grassroots talents, many of whom have gone on to represent Nigeria at local and international levels. He achieved a significant milestone by leading Abia Warriors to their inaugural Premier League qualification after years of persistent effort. Osuagwu was also part of the technical team that guided Heartland FC to multiple continental competitions, contributing to their successes.

Furthermore, Osuagwu's leadership was instrumental during his time at Busdor FC of Port Harcourt, where the team came tantalizingly close to achieving promotion to the Premier League.

Enyimba's decision to bring in Coach Osuagwu demonstrates their commitment to assembling a strong and capable team to excel in both domestic and international competitions. Under the guidance of experienced personnel like Osuagwu, the club aims to maintain its legacy of success and further elevate its standing in the football community.
