Coach Austin Eguavoen has resigned from Nigeria Professional Football League outfit, Sunshine Stars just two months after he was unveiled.

The former Nigerian international left with goalkeeper trainer Ike shorunmu after the Akure side were beaten at home by Plateau United on wednesday.

The Sunshine Stars management confirmed on Twitter that Eguavoen had resigned and they respected his decision.

It was gathered from sources within the team that the tactician took the decision because he was not happy with poor officiating against his team, plus club management’s inability to pay players’ wages which has slowed down their output on the field.

Coach Akin Olowookere has been named interim coach and he would be in charge when they face Kano Pillars in Sunday’s NPFL game at the Sani Abacha Stadium.

Eguavon’s exit means the Akure-based side would be looking to appoint the 6th manager within 2years .

Sunshine Stars are 17th on the log with 27 points from 23 games.
