Mohammed Babaganaru has expressed his delight to lead Nigeria Professional Football League debutants, Yobe Desert Stars and has promised to stabilise the club.

The tactician signed his contract papers on Tuesday night after he couldn’t reach a compromise with Enyimba who offered him a job before pitching his tent with the Damaturu based side.

“I am happy to be here. It has been a long talk and deliberation but at the end of the all I have been able to accept to work with Yobe Desert Stars in the upcoming season," Babaganaru told Goal.

"The club has been the one on my mind since the first day they approached me but I wanted changes in some areas and I made it known to them.

“I was offered a three-year contract but I elected to spend the season solely with them with provision for renewal at the end of the season. I will do my best to ensure that the club enjoy their stay in their debut season in the premier league. We have a lot of plans for the team and very shortly we shall be unveiling them.

“I have come with a goalkeeper trainer and with the other coaches on ground; I know that we shall all be working together for the betterment of the team.

“I was approached by Enyimba but I have moved on after they didn’t back up their intentions with serious talks. Besides, I would have become an assistant coach there. I am delighted with this,” he concluded
