Ambrose Efe has been handed a coaching role at Scottish Premiership club Livingston.
The former Super Eagles defender will serve as the club’s new assistant reserve team manager alongside goalkeeper Gary Maley and Marvin Bartley.
The trio will take over from Stevie Pittman and Derek McWilliams who departed the club back in June this year.
Ambrose Efe linked up with Livingston just a few weeks before the 2019/20 season ended abruptly after going over a year without playing a competitive football following a January 2019 exit from Hibernian.
“Efe & Stretch are two massive characters but in all seriousness, they both bring their own high level of expertise. Stretch has been a goalkeeper for a long time and he’s now passing on that experience to the younger goalkeepers at the club and Efe has played at the absolute highest level so to have him involved is absolutely brilliant for us and the boys will love working with him,” reads a statement on the club’s website.
Head of Football Operations David Martindale said: “For me, the pandemic has probably fast-tracked the opportunity in all honesty as Stevie, Derek and Marv were working very well together with the reserves last season.
“Stretch & Efe are more than capable and they will bring a variety of skills to assist Marv. Both fantastic individuals and professionals in their own right.
“All 3 of the guys are very different but collectively they will do fantastically well in my opinion.”
