Kwara United coach Abdullahi Biffo has been granted some days off for him to travel to America for urgent medical treatment.
It would be recalled that Abdullahi Biffo before the start of the ongoing NPFL season was in US where he had eye surgery and other medical treatments before he returned.
For some days now, Abdullahi Biffo has been having some health issues which prompted him to make arrangement for him to go back to the US hospital where he was treated last year.
Kwara United Chairman Kumbi Titiloye wished Abdullahi Biffo quick recovery and also distanced the club from speculation of hiring a replacement.
“We are not hiring another coach because Biffo will soon return after his treatment in US and his assistants will be in charge in subsequent games,” Kumbi Titiloye explained to Kwara United Media.
With this latest development, Coach Lukman Ijaiya and Mukaila Iyala are expected to be in charge of Kwara United NPFL match-day 30 encounter against Akwa United on Saturday in Ilorin.
Lukman Ijaiya and Iyala have for years been working as youth coaches at Kwara United before their recent elevation by the management.
