Nigeria Professional Football League side Akwa United, have recalled Belgian coach, Maurice Cooreman to his duty post, ending a period of suspension due to poor results, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Cooreman who has had coaching spells at defunct Nigerdock, Gabros International, NPA Seasiders, Bendel Insurance, Enyimba, Kaduna United and Gombe United and who remains the longest servicing expatriate coach in the domestic top flight was handed an indefinite suspension by officials of Akwa United after a 1-0 home defeat by Enyimba.
Ere Dokubo held the fort while Cooreman was on suspension with reports earlier this week linking the 2015 Federation Cup holders to Abia Warriors coach, Kennedy Boboye.
"Cooreman has been recalled to his duty post", Uwem Ekoi, the PRO of the club told Completesportsnigeria.com.j
"He supervised the teams training session on Wednesday.
"His suspension was for one month, and naturally after that, he has to return to his duty post," Ekoi said.
On the planned move to hire Boboye as successor to Cooreman, the Akwa United spokesman vehemently denied it.
"That was not true at all," he snapped. "Such report or statement never emanated from us"
