Nigeria’s Paul Aigbogun has been appointed as the new manager of Danish second division club Jammerbugt FC.
The 50-year-old, who was recently handling Glacis United in the Gilbratar League, has previously been in charge of Nigeria’s U20 national team, leading them to a round of 16 finish at the 2019 U20 World Cup.
The former assistant coach for the Super Eagles and Nevada Wonders manager, had in the past also managed Warri Wolves and two-time CAF Champions League winners Enyimba.
Aigbogun’s last club job was at Glacis United in the Gilbratar League in 2021, where he lasted only two months.
Following their relegation from the first division last season, Jammerbugt parted ways with their former manager Nabil Trabelsis and confirmed the appointment of the Nigerian, as they hope to make a quick return to the Denmark topflight league.
Confirming the news on their website, the club said:
It has long been a big open question who should lead Jammerbugt FC as the new head coach. That question now appears to have been answered.
It will be English Paul Aigbogun who will be at the head of Jammerbugt FC. He comes to the club between Pandrup and Kaas with a good amount of experience in his backpack. Among other things, like his predecessor Nabil Trabelsi, he has also been involved in the Nigerian Football Association.
Jammerbugt owner Klaus-Dieter Muller added:
Among other things, he has been in charge of Nigeria’s U20 national team, and he has also had several other tasks in the association.
We are bringing in an extremely experienced coach, and that gives me faith that we can develop our young players so that we can also move up in the NordicBet League again.
Paul Aigbogun has now joined Sunday Oliseh on the list of Nigeria coaches with jobs in Europe.
Oliseh, who played for top European clubs including Ajax, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus, currently handles German club SV 19 Straelen.
