Kano Pillars Recalls Slovenian Coach

Globacom Premier League side, Kano Pillars Football Club, has decided to end the suspension of its Slovenian coach, Ivo Sajh, understands.
After several weeks of dilly-dallying on the future of the troubled coach, the management of the former Nigerian champion on Tuesday night decided to lift the indefinite suspension on the Slovenian.
The club’s media officer, Shehu Adamu, told on Wednesday afternoon from Gombe that the management’s decision to end the suspension on Sajh was necessitated by the report submitted by the investigation panel set up on Tuesday.
Adamu disclosed that the recommendation from the panel’s report instructed the management of Kano Pillars to recall the Slovenian coach with immediate effect.
It would be recalled that the management of Kano Pillars opted to place Sajh on indefinite suspension following the club’s woeful display in the CAF Champions League semi-final first-leg against Heartland Football Club in Owerri.
The Kano club subsequently set up an investigation committee to investigate Sajh’s comments against the club in the wake of his suspension.
But the club’s spokesman also informed that the management has also decided to issue the Slovenian handler a warning letter after his recall to the side.
“The club management has decided to recall Mr. Ivo Sajh from his suspension and also gave him a warning letter over his behaviour while on suspension. But he has been told to resume with immediate effect and will retain his position as technical adviser of the side. His recall was decided on Tuesday after the investigation committee submitted their report to the club on the same day,” he told
Adamu also quashed reports saying that Kano Pillars opted to recall the former Jasper United coach since it is finding it difficult to raise the pay-off for Sajh, which is believed to be in the region of $80,000.
On the other hand, Sajh is owed three months salaries, also understands, and the Slovenian’s visa into Nigeria has since expired.
Sajh is also demanding for a work permit, which has not been issued to him since he arrived on the shores of the country in April this year.
The Slovenian still has seven months of his contract left after he signed a 14-month deal this year, which has seen him earn $5,000 monthly.
