Babaganaru confirms Yobe Desert Stars approach

The ex-Kano Pillars and Nasarawa United tactician has confirmed he has opened negotiations with officials of the newly promoted side

Mohammed Babaganaru is the favourite to lead Yobe Desert Stars on their return to the Nigeria Professional Football League, the former Kano Pillars coach confirms.

Babaganaru last coached Wikki Tourists at the beginning of last season but was relieved of his duties before midseason due to unfavourable results.

The ex- Nasarawa United and Kano Pillars’ gaffer failed to divulge much information but hints that he would only speak after concluding discussions with officials of Damaturu outfit.

“I can say much for now. I am on my way to Yobe and I will only talk after everything has been sorted out. It will be too early for me to start talking. The club is a good club and the fact that they qualified for the premier league from the lower league indicated their seriousness,” Babaganaru told Goal.

“By the time everything is sealed I will unfold my plans for the club to ensure that we their season in the topflight won’t be a mere fluke.

“I can’t be judged by the last place I worked because I have handled teams that have demanded for my return in the past. There are so many things that can make a coach succeed or otherwise. I won three league titles with Kano Pillars and I don’t think I can become a bad good coach overnight,” he concluded.

 Yobe Desert Stars gained promotion to the elite division after coming second behind Kwara United in the Northern Conference of the Nigeria National League.
