Daily Trust - - SPORT - By Mansur Abubakar

Kaduna United mid­fielder Isah Aminu has de­scribed the death of the team’s man­ager Saleh Lato as shock­ing.

The ex­pe­ri­enced gaffer died

last Sun­day at the Ibrahim Sani Abacha hospi­tal, Kaduna, af­ter just a day of ill­ness.

“It was just sud­den, he only com­plained of malaria in the morn­ing and by evening the news broke that he was no more, he was a good man and ex­pe­ri­enced coach and we will miss him im­mensely” the player said in a tele­phone in­ter­view.

Lato will al­ways be re­mem­bered by Kaduna United faith­ful as he was part of the tech­ni­cal crew that won the 2010 Fed­er­a­tion Cup, beat­ing Eny­imba 3-2.

United will be bat­tling to get their sea­son back on track af­ter week seven away loss to Crown FC which leaves the team lan­guish­ing in 17th po­si­tion in the Nigeria Pre­mier League.
