Monday, 9 May 2022 was exactly 22 years after Coach Ado Zubairu Danbatta of Jigawa golden stars died.
Indeed, his contributions, not only to players’ careers but to their lives generally cannot be easily forgotten. His memory shall continue to linger in the football space, especially for his disciples.
Also, the teeming youth footballers of his time will remain indebted to him and shall continue to pray for the repose of his soul. The wide vacuum created by his death is still unfilled hence I pray to have a coach/leader with his ideology philosophy and foresight.
May Allah in his infinite mercy forgive his shortcomings and reward him with jannatul Firdausi and bless those he left behind Ameen.
