After a remarkable first ever season in the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL, Dakkada FC will not continue with Caleb Esu for the 2020/ 21 edition.

The management of Dakkada FC on Thursday announced the appointment of a new head coach, Umar Danlami Kwasau.


The Kaduna-born, former FC Taraba, Kada City and Delta Force gaffer takes over from Esu whose contract expired at the end of last season and was not renewed by the club.

In a brief unveiling ceremony, Chairman of Dakkada FC, Aniedi Dickson, expressed delight at being able to secure the services of the “experienced football tactician” and urged him to bring his technical and tactical savvy to the fore in the discharge of his duties in order to bring glory to the football club in the upcoming 2020/2021 Nigeria football league season.

Dickson who noted that the move was made so as to fortify the technical department of the team also posited that the new coach will be given the “free hand” to operate and solicited the support of relevant stakeholders from within and outside the state to enable him succeed on his new assignment.

Coach Danlami has already said he is ready to immediately hit the ground running at his new job and pledged to work assiduously with members of his new technical crew to churn out positive on-and-off-the-field results.

Danlami will be assisted by Lawrence Kingsley, Wisdom Etuk, Sunday Etefia and Otobong Ekanem.
