Ganaru seals one year Nasarawa United deal

03 December 2013, 17:18

Lafia - The immediate-past head coach of Kano Pillars Football Club, Mohammed Baba Ganaru has signed a one-year deal to handle Nasarawa United FC.

The Chairman, Nasarawa United FC, Isaac Danladi who signed on behalf of the club, told newsmen in Lafia on Tuesday that Ganaru’s choice was because of his ``impressive’’ track record.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the development has put to rest the controversy surrounding the coach’s next line of action after his resignation from Kano Pillars.

Danladi, who declined to mention the contract sum, however said the deal was for the 2013/2014 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.

He also said the deal was subject to renewal at the end of the season.

The chairman expressed optimism at the development, saying the club’s fortunes in the forthcoming season were bright in view of the coach’s expertise.

“We are optimistic that with the new coach, Nasarawa United will perform better than we did last season and possibly play on the continent,” Danladi said.

On his part, Ganaru expressed delight at taking up the new job and promised to do his best to take the club to the next level.

He then called for the support of the club’s management, players and supporters in order to help in actualising their dream of seeing their team play on the continent.

On the controversy surrounding his resignation from Pillars, Ganaru said the matter had been resolved as the Kano State Government had accepted his resignation.
