Ex-international Bright Omokaro on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 emerged as the coach of Osun United after the screening conducted by the management of the club for five shortlisted coaches.

Omokaro beat two ex-handlers of the Omoluabi Giants, Bayo Adesina and Sina Afolabi, as well as former Kwara United gaffer, Tunde Sanni, and Agbana Ademola of Ekiti United for the exalted hot seat of the club.

The 3SC and Delta Force Coach led in the interview conducted by the management and replaced Samson Unuanel, whose contract expired after the end of 2019 Nigeria National League season.

Omokaro, who played together with Osun United’s President, Chief Ademola Adesina, in Maroc ’88, captained Super Eagles (then known as Green Eagles) to win a silver medal in the tournament.

The professional career of Omokaro, who started his footballing journey from the defunct New Nigerian Bank (NNB), Benin City, spanned over 12 years and he also starred for Bendel Insurance, Asec Mimosa, ACB, and Abiola Babes before he called it quits with 3SC in 1996. He won Nigeria National Division One League with NNB as well as WAFU Cup, then CAF Cup with 3SC and made over 43 appearances for the Nigerian senior national team, where he featured in two Africa Cup of Nations championships.

The former technical adviser of Mighty Jets of Jos, who hails from Ovia Local Government area of Edo State, had a coaching training with Rayo Vallecano of Spain and possesses CAF C Coaching Licence.
