Ikhana Returns To Sharks Amid Celebration

It appears that the curtain on the long drawn transfer saga involving Kadiri Ikhana has come to an end after he returned to Sharks Football Club at the weekend to the excitement of the club.
Ikhana had led Sharks FC to a runner-up finish in the Federation Cup, but decided to look elsewhere for a new job.
But the coach breezed into Port Harcourt while the side was still grappling with the fact that he had decided to dump it in his usual style of moving ahead after spending one season with his employer.
An official of Sharks FC told our correspondent that the sudden return of Ikhana to the club was greeted with jubilation among players and officials of the side after reports had linked him with a move away from the Port Harcourt Premier League.
Ikhana was said to have even addressed the players and officials of the club that he had never abandoned them as it was being reported in the media.
“It was like a bolt out of the blue when Ikhana arrived in our camp in Port Harcourt. He is a man full of surprises and I believe no one can actually read his thoughts or predict what he can come up with the next moment. His return was a surprise because he had gone for several weeks after the Federation Cup final. The players are really happy that he has returned to the club for the coming season because they welcomes him warmly,” the official informed our correspondent.
All through the off-season, Ikhana has been rumoured to have joined Sunshine Stars on the grounds that he is a close friend to the Ondo State governor, Olusegun Mimiko.
But talks over the deal for the former African Coach of the Year to link up with the management of Sunshine Stars did not materialise, as he and the Ondo State representatives failed to reach an agreement.
