Gbenga Ogunbote has teamed up with Remo Stars ahead of the 2021/ 22 Nigeria Professional Football League season.

Ogunbote coaches at Sunshine Stars last term but threw in the towel just before the end of the season and has just been announced as the head coach of newly promoted Remo Stars.


Ogunbote fondly known as ‘The Oracle’ signed a year deal with the club to take over from former coach, Daniel Ogunmodede who led the team back into the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL.

The Oracle who has been into coaching for decades has formerly worked at Gateway United, Shooting Stars Sports Club, 3SC and Sunshine Stars of Akure.

He was also in charge of former League Champions, Rangers International when the Flying Antelopes came from three goals down to beat Kano Pillars to the AITEO Cup crown in 2018.

Speaking with RSFC Media, Ogunbote said he is proud and happy to have joined Remo Stars FC, and currently hopes to take the club to higher levels.

“I am very proud and happy to have joined Remo Stars, I hope to help the team to the level at which the club wants to attain.”

“We have an ambition this season, before now the club has decided to maintain their stay in the NPFL which is my desire too but I will be so grateful if we go on to win the league or probably get a slot in any of the CAF competitions.”

In the same vein, the Chief Executive Officer of Remo Stars, Lukmon Ogungbefun welcomed Gbenga Ogunbote to the club and promised to support him to the fullest in achieving greatness for the club.

“I welcome Gbenga Ogunbote to Remo Stars and I promise on behalf of the management that we will support him to the fullest.”
