“Sunshine Stars have not told anybody that the club will be going for an expatriate to handle the team and we are not even thinking towards that direction,” Bankole told Goal.

“As far as we are concerned, we had a good season and were just unlucky not to have secured a place in any of the Caf club competitions.

“Right now, we are still reviewing our outing for last season and will surely map out strategies to do well next season.

“For the coach, he is certainly going to be a Nigerian. We have qualified coaches in the country, so why are we going for an expatriate who is interested in fat pays?
