If information reaching our sports desk is anything to go by, all may not be well with the working condition of Sharks Football club newly signed Technical Adviser, Augustine Eguavoen.
We gathered that the former U-23 national team coach up till now does not have a signed contract with Sharks while the club management has invited Eguavoen as the newly signed Technical Adviser to prosecute the 2012/2013 Nigeria Professional League (NPL).
It would be recalled that coach Eguavoen was not even close to the team when Sharks recorded its first victory at home over Warri Wolves 1-0.
Soccer pundits are of the opinion that the development might draw Sharks back in the league, if no contract was signed. Sharks recorded its first loses at home with Eguavoen watching from the bench. Kwara United handed over 1 goal deficit to Sharks at their home ground over the weekend.
Our investigation revealed that Eguavoen who had won the league and had made impact with Enyimba Football Club in the CAF competition may just not be happy with Sharks management for not formalizing his contract terms Technical Adviser.
Ardent fans and supporters of Shark Football Club of Port Harcourt are worried that the season may be difficult for the club based on this ugly development, adding that some of the fresh signed on players may not have the desired qualities to prosecute the league.
Some also alleged that majority of the players were signed on political grounds, meaning that their positions as players of Shark may not have been merited.
Same was said of the signed on players of Dolphins. According to them, the results recorded by both teams are the reflection of the manipulation of those in position of authority in the Rivers State Sports Ministry.
Fan are in doubt if Sharks and Dolphins could survive the league, if both teams will not be pushed to the lower league. ###
