Kaduna United FC manager Salleh ‘Lato’ Tanko has died following a brief illness.

The ex-Nigeria international and a Nigerian League veteran passed on in the early hours of Sunday, 20 April and has since been buried according to Islamic rites.

Nicknamed after the Polish footballer, Gregorz Lato- of the 70s, for his skillful style of play, the former Iwuanyanwu Nationale player dazzled beyond expectations in three-decades of his surgeon in the Nigeria Professional Football League.

Lato was aboard the ill-fated flight that crashed in the Tamanrasset desert whilst ferrying members of the team from a CAF competition. He miraculously escaped that fatal crash without a scratch.

He was in his playing days believed to be above the law of football, so much so, when he emerged from the plane crash, he declared he was above the laws of death.

The League Management Company (LMC) and several clubs have led in making tributes to the late footballer and coach.

Easter Day’s Glo Premier League fixtures will start with a minute silence in honour of the deceased, the LMC has announced.

An LMC statement read: “Coach Sule “Lato” Tanko would be sorely missed by all.

Enyimba FC said in the statement: “Our hearts go out to the family of Coach Sale Tanko and Kaduna United over the passing of the great man. Please accept our sympathies.”
