Nigerian giants Enyimba have dismissed reports that they are interested in signing Ghana deputy coach Maxwell Konadu after he led the Black Stars B to the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations title.

The reports suggested that, the Nigeria Professional Football League side were courting Konadu after he masterminded a 4-1 victory over Nigeria in the WAFU final on Sunday.

However, the General Coordinator of Enyimba, Jude Anyadufu says his outfit is satisfied with the output of their current coach Gbenga Ogunbote.

“We are satisfied with our coach, so I don’t know where that story is coming from. Ignore it, there is no truth in it,” Anyadufu said in an interview with guardian.ng.
