The former Enyimba handler may not join Sharks again as Port Harcourt indigenes want the present coach to continueFormer Enyimba coach Augustine Eguavoen may not get the job at Sharks as indigenes are set to fight for the present coach Ere Dokubo to continue for next season.
Dokubo took over after the Rivers State Government suspended 17 players and coaches of Sharks.
Goal.com learnt that the deal to sign Eguavoen is almost completed but the snag is that some concerned people in Port Harcourt have vowed that they will resist every move to make Eguavoen the coach of Sharks next season.
A source close to the team revealed to Goal.com that a lot of people are gathering forces to make sure that Dokubo remains in charge next season.
"This is the chance for a coach that is well known in Port Harcourt to handle the team. We love Dokubo and we want to make sure that he is the coach that will lead Sharks next season," the source said.
"What is the essence of bringing another coach when we know what he can do. We will not agree to any move by the Sports Ministry to sign another coach apart from Dokubo.
"We have told the relevant authorities that Ere Dokubo should be the coach and we intend to make sure it remains that way."
However, there are strong speculations that the former Super Eagles coach will be in charge of Sharks next season.
