Warri Wolves have appointed Paul Offor as interim manager following the sack of Evans Ogenyi on Wednesday.
Ogenyi’s sack, according to the club’s management, was due to the team’s poor run of results in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
The coach was fired after the team’s 0-0 draw against Jigawa GS in Matchday 16.
Etu Moses, Warri Wolves chief executive, who confirmed Ogenyi’s dismissal, said Offor, the first team assistant coach, will be in charge of the club on an interim basis, pending the appointment of a new technical adviser.
“It’s very very unfortunate that of all the teams, we played a goalless draw with Jigawa Golden Stars,” Moses said.
He added: “It shows that something is wrong somewhere and action has to be taken.
“We have relieved Evans Ogenyi of his job as the team’s technical adviser.
“Coach Paul Offor will be in charge of the team, pending when we will appoint a new technical adviser.
“We thank him (Ogenyi) for his time with us and wish him all the best for the future.
“We aren’t owing anybody.
“We have paid salaries and other entitlements up to date.”
Warri Wolves have had a bad run in the 2020/21 NPFL season after securing four wins, three draws and nine loss in the sixteen matches played so far.
After a 1-0 win over Rivers United, the Seasiders lost 2-0 to Kwara United and Wikki Tourists.
They also drew with Enyimba, Akwa United and Jigawa Golden Stars.
The Seasiders are 17th on the NPFL table with 15 points.
Ogenyi was a former coach of a plethora of Nigerian clubs, including Bayelsa United, Enyimba, Nasarawa United, Jigawa Golden Stars, defunct Ocean Boys and Lobi Stars.
