The Peoples Elephants are in the market for a new head coach after they failed to renew the contract of erstwhile gaffer Gbenga Ogunbote who has joined their oriental rivals, Enugu Rangers.

“In the next couple of days we will come out with the name of our new coach and kick- start our preparations for the new season on a full scale.”
The Aba-based outfit finished third in the NPFL last season and will compete in the CAF Confederation Cup next year.
The club last tasted success on the continent in 2004 when they won the CAF Champions League for a second time.
