Sharks media officer, Peter Obaje told Goal.com that all arrangements have been concluded for the new coach to be presented to the media before the derby.
"Yes it is true that Ogunbote will be presented to the journalists tomorrow before the game against Dolphins. We did not want to leave the team without a coach, that is why we decided to give him the job almost immediately.
