Remo Stars defeated NPFL champions Enyimba to put their humiliation against Sporting Lagos, with their coach getting an interesting reward.

There were wild celebrations in the Remo Stars camp after they bounced back from a heavy defeat by overcoming champions Enyimba - with boss Daniel Ogunmodede getting a very special reward.

The Sky Blues were brought crashing down to earth on Sunday following a thumping 4-1 defeat to regional rivals Sporting Lagos in the Southwest Derby in a rude reality check.

But Ogunmodede's men responded in the perfect way, digging deep to edge out Enyimba 1-0 just days later to reignite their championship charge.

Super-sub Adams Olamilekan was the hero after he came off the bench to score the decisive winner 19 minutes from time.

As the full-time whistle went in that gritty victory, cameras captured an amusing but touching scene on the sidelines.

Clearly elated at his side's character-building win, an emotionally drained Ogunmodede was surprised by his wife, who planted a massive kiss on his lips.

The footage showed the Remo manager's eyes light up as his other half arrived to congratulate him, pulling him in for a loving smooch in a video posted on social media by NPFL Tori Podcast.

It's that kind of support that can make all the difference in the pressure-cooker environment of Nigerian football's top flight.

Remo's revival has them firmly back in the NPFL title picture - and you can bet Ogunmodede will be getting more celebratory smackers if they can keep this run going.
