Nasarawa United chairman describes Babaganaru’s exit a blessing in disguise
Chairman of Nasarawa United FC of Lafia, Isaac Danladi, has described the decision by Mohammed Babaganaru to quit as the team’s head coach is “a blessing in disguise,’’ reports the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Danladi, who was reacting to Nasarawa United’s current form in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), said yesterday in Lafia that the club had suddenly been hitting form after Babaganaru’s exit in July.
God has a way of doing things; incidentally, these same boys that played under Babaganaru are all of a sudden seeing their fortunes turning around.
The team even went on to defeat Kano Pillars under Babaganaru and breaking a 12-year-old jinx of pillars,” Danladi said.
He said the decision of the club’s management to allow his assistant Kabiru Dogo to take over the job paid off, going by the team’s latest performance in the league.
The chairman noted that club’s 3-2 away win to Sunshine Stars in Akure at the weekend was a pointer to what fans and supporters should expect from the team in the coming weeks.
He appreciated the state government for the financial and moral support to the team, stressing that the team’s support base had also improved tremendously.
“You can see that fans’ attendance of matches during our home matches have doubled since the club’s victory in Kano,” he added.
Nasarawa United are currently occupying the seventh spot on the Glo Premier League table with 43 points from 29 matches.
