Reports coming in from Katsina indicates that the head coach of Katsina United, Abdullahi Usman Biffo, has quit the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side having tendered his resignation letter on Saturday.
The gaffer, whose future had been the subject of much speculation during the 2018/19 season, has admitted that the time was right for him to step down.
According to the letter available to Futbalgalore.com, Biffo wrote: “I, Abdullahi Usman Biffo wishes to inform the management of Katsina United after a deep thought and consideration, that I have decided to resign from my position with immediate effect as the Head Coach of Katsina United Football Club.”
“It wasn’t an easy decision for me to take but I have to move on after considering some certain factors.”
“Kindly use this letter as my one month notice as it’s clearly stated in my terms of contract that; A month notification must be given to the club in case I want to resign.”
Biffo’s contract with Katsina United was due to expire in November 2019 and Kwara-born tactician, who helped Niger Tornadoes gain promotion to the NPFL in 2015, has resigned to rule out extending his tenure.
“Am giving the management a month notification as my original contract run till the end of November. This will enable Katsina United get a new coach before next football season begin,” he continued.
“However, I wish to implore the management to kindly pay up my outstanding dues to enable me cater for some personal commitments.”
“I want to thank the Chairman, management staff, technical crew and the players for throwing their support behind me which enabled us to have a smooth working relationship.”
“The experience amassed here will forever remain in my memory. Thanks and God Bless,” the former Kogi United boss added.
Coach Biffo has indeed enjoyed the highs and lows of the round leather game and could soon be back for another stint to take up another challenge.
