SCORENigeria has been reliably informed that champions Enugu Rangers will have to shell out as much as N52.5m, being Imama Amapakabo’s salaries for 21 months, should they sack him.
Rangers have handed Imama a “suspended sack” following the team’s recent poor run with officials telling SCORENigeria a decision will be taken on the coach shortly.
A top insider has now told SCORENigeria that the new contract the young coach signed after he led Rangers to win the NPFL championship last year stipulated that should he be sacked, he will be entitled to a pay off of 21 months’ salaries.
Imama is the highest earning coach in the NPFL with a monthly salary of N2.5m after he turned down even more lucrative offers from the likes of Kano Pillars and Akwa United at the end of last season.
It therefore means Rangers will have to shell out N52.5m to see the back of the former Enyimba and Sharks coach.
