Asomugha as Vice- Chairman to Kanu, who has had a torrid time, managing affairs of the club, arguably Nigeria's best side of all times. Aside opening the defence of their Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) title, with a surprise 0-2 defeat in Gombe, to little known Doma United.

Enyimba are also out of reckoning at the continental.
