Few days after his appointment as the Technical Adviser of Yobe Desert Stars Football club, following the sack of the former coach Ngozi Elechi, the new coach Taiye Yusuf has lost his first match 0-1 to Gombe United at the last weekend.
The Media Officer of the club, Jibo Zakari, told Blueprint that the coach was yet to be acquainted and familiarised with the players, but confirmed the club played a good match.
“Despite the fact that the Technical Adviser is new, he was able to prove himself. The management of the club was impressed with his performance. We got penalty but was not awarded”.
“I am optimistic by the time he gets used to the players, victories will be ours,” he said.
Yobe Desert stars are at the bottom of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) in group B, after playing 13 games and garnering only 10 points in the current season.
They will be playing at home against visiting Delta Force next Sunday.
