It’s been wonderful experience coaching in NPFL -Makinwa


Katsina United FC gaffer, Henry Makinwa has reiterated his affection for the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) saying that, with his few years of coaching in Nigeria’s top flight division, nothing to regret about. The merchant tactician who is a UEFA Pro License holder represented 17 clubs in 11 countries during his professional career.

The vastly exposed Obafemi Awolowo University lle-lfe graduate started his coaching career in Nigeria with Abubakar Bukola Saraki Football Club of Ilorin, in 2016 and used his tactical masterpiece to promote the side to Nigeria Professional Football League after just a season in Nigeria National League. Known in Portugal as ‘Maki’, the ex-international later moved to Abia Warriors and later joined Katsina United at the beginning of the just concluded season.

While speaking with journalists, Makinwa stated thus;”I highly recommend NPFL to all Nigerian coaches abroad with certificates to jump at any offers for them to coach in NPFL. “It’s worth it and they will add Value to NPFL. There are few challenges but it’s worth it.

‘My four (4) seasons with NPFL teams no regrets,” Makinwa who ensured that ‘Changi Boys’ have broken the jinx of losing away games having amassed 7 points away from home in the just concluded season stated.
