Although, there has been no official confirmation from the Championship outfit’s website about Okocha’s appointment to the backroom staff, but the 44 year old is expected to be unveiled after the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

It will be recalled that Okocha had an impressive record at Bolton Wanderers, taking them from relegation to the English Premier League. He contributed 12 goal, had 124 appearances and also captained the team during his stint at the club.
