Dolphins replace GM Awanen

By Sammy Wejinya

Three-time Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions, Dolphins now have a new general manager.

He is Joe Johnson and he replaces Dumbor Awanen who was sacked recently.

Johnson has been serving as the Chairman of the Rivers State branch of the Nigerian Football supporters club until his recent appointment.

He said he would “try his best” to make Dolphins one of the best football clubs in Nigeria.

“I feel humbled by this appointment and will try my best to ensure that Dolphins are seen as one of the best in the country,” Johnson told on Friday.

Meanwhile, manager of Dolphins, Stanley Eguma has lauded the move to appoint Johnson as the club’s new general manager.

Eguma said Johnson is a “football person who understands what is required of him” while predicting that the football chief will steer the club to Victorian heights.

“Those of us in Rivers State know that Johnson is a football person who understands what is required of him as far as this job is concerned.

“He lives for football, he is very experienced and has been a fan of Dolphins for as long as I can remember.

“I am sure he will succeed in his new post,” Eguma said.
