Amoo Starts Shooting Stars’ Job In Relegation

New chief coach of Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC), Fatai Amoo, got off his career at Ibadan Premier League side on a shaky note when it lost by a lone goal to Enugu Rangers in a game regarded as a traditional derby.
Shooting Stars lost to a Fred Okwara goal and in spite of trying to battle back into the game, it was the Flying Antelopes that triumphed and earned all three points at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu last Sunday.
The loss means that Shooting Stars dropped into the relegation zone again and in Amoo’s first competitive game in charge of the side.
Amoo, who is part of the coaching setup of the Super Eagles Team B that won the WAFU Nations Cup this month, is the third coach to handle the Oluyole Warriors this season after Phillip Boamah and Mutiu Adepoju.
But the former Sunshine Stars’ coach is not in a panicky mood after a dreadful start in charge of the Ibadan-based club.
“I don’t think there’s need to panic about anything now. We still have time save the situation on ground and I am sure that by the end of the season Shooting Stars will remain in the Premier League,” assured the national team assistant coach in an interview with Naijaligue.blogspot.com.
On appointment, Amoo was handed the mandate of saving Shooting Stars from going to relegation in a short-term deal that would elapse at the end of this season’s campaign.
The ex-Julius Berger gaffer is confident of steering the troubled ship of Shooting Stars off the stormy waters of relegation.
“I am very, very confident that Shooting Stars will not be relegated,” Amoo simply said with so much emphasis in his voice.
The Ibadan club would play host to Kwara United this season and Amoo would be hoping to kickstart his short stay at the club with a win in front of the home faithful.
