Former coach of Nigeria Premier League side Lobi Stars of Makurdi, Justin Tenger is dead. He was aged 75.
Coach Tenger was confirmed dead at the Federal Medical Centre, Keffi, Nasarawa State yesterday after a protracted illness.
A two-man delegation of the Benue Sports Stakeholders just last Saturday visited the now late coach Tenger at FMC, Keffi where he was receiving treatment.
The delegation made up of coaches Andrew Iornongo and Emma Orsar donated the sum of N100,000 to Tenger on behalf of the stakeholders as a token of moral and financial support.
The leader of delegation, Coach Iornongo conveyed the sympathy and well-wishes of the members to the former, BCC Lions, Lobi Stars, Niger Tornadoes and Kwara United coach and wished him quick recovery.
Responding on behalf of his father, Timothy Tersoo Tenger, appreciated the financial assistance and said with prayers from loved ones like the Benue State Sports Stakeholders, his father would pull through the present health challenge. But he lost the battle.
