Henry Makinwa has staged a return to the Nigeria Professional Football League after his unceremonious exit from Abia Warriors last season.

The highly travelled gaffer has been engaged by Katsina United FC under the new leadership of Prince Abdulssamad Badamasi.

He takes over from Abdullahi Biffo who resigned his appointment at the end of last season.

According to the Club, the ex Abubakar Bukola Saraki FC (ABS) of Ilorin coach will resume work on Monday.

Quoting the words of Katsina United chairman Prince Abdulssamad Badamasi “It gives us great pleasure to welcome Henry Makinwa to Katsina United as head coach.

Makinwa possesses fantastic knowledge and understanding of the game having coached clubs like ABS and Abia Warriors.

He played in the Nigeria league for many seasons before moving abroad to continue his playing career.

“I believe with his vast knowledge of the game as a coach and former player, we have made the right choice. He declared.

“We will do everything we can to ensure he has all the support required to be a huge success.’

The Spain based coach will be assisted by Coach Bishir Sadauki who has been with the team for more than a decade.

‘The Changi Boys’ are expected to play some friendly games at home to check the depth of the team before embarking on pre-season tour next week.
