KF Tirana who are the reigning Albanian champions have sacked Nigerian coach Ndubuisi Egbo months after helping them to win the League title which was a big record in history.

The ongoing League season in Albania has not been rosy for KF Tirana which made the management of the club to decide on firing the Nigerian coach.

Playing 11 games in all competitions, Tirana only managed to win three which the club's chiefs considered as not a good one.

Egbo guided Tirana to win their first League title in a decade and became the first African coach to achieve the feat.

According to the report on GOAL, Egbo has appreciated the Albania side for the chance given to him to work with them and also wished the side good luck in future.

"I would like to thank the club for the opportunity to serve, which helped me become the first African to win a European title and end up managing in the Uefa Champions League and the Europa League.
"I don't have any regrets or disappointment because I gave the maximum and the team did likewise, so I remain grateful to God for what we achieved and accomplished together.''

Egbo was a goalkeeper during his active playing career and he also played 157 games for Tirana before he became a coach.

The 47-year-old had 12 appearances for the Super Eagles and scored one goal as a goalkeeper.

During his playing time in the national team and all the clubs he played for, Rashidi Yekini was one of the brilliant strikers in the world considering the number of goals he scored.

Yekini was also the first Nigerian player to score in a World Cup game when the West African nation appeared at the 1994 edition in the United States.

Between 1984 to 1998, Rashidi Yekini scored 37 goals for the Super Eagles in 58 games and the record has not been broken since he died eight years ago.
