Baba Ganaru quits Kano Pillars, heads to Nasarawa United

Kano Pillars coach, Mohammed Baba Ganaru has confirmed his resignation as the head coach of the back to back league champions and will resume as Nasarawa United boss on Monday.

Baba Ganaru has spent over five seasons with Pillars and guided them to the summit of the league the last two seasons that he was in charge of the club.

Ganaru told Goal that he was forced out of Sai Masu over the lack of respect to his person by some members in the management board which he declined to name.

He said he decided to quit Pillars when the ovation was loudest so as not to soil his name and the image he has built for years.

He said he tendered his resignation letter to the General Manager of the club, Abba Galadima on Friday afternoon and that he already agreed terms which Nasarawa United that narrowly missed relegation to the lower league last season.

"I am leaving Pillars for good. I don't want my name to be soiled at all. Some members of the management board do not see anything good in me and I don't want my image to be run down because of personal, selfish inordinate ambition,” Ganaru told Goal.

"I have negotiated with Nasarawa United and I have decided to take a pay cut for that to be possible. I will by God's grace sign for Nasarawa United on Monday, all things being equal," Ganaru said.

He is to collect a salary of 500,000 naira and signing-on fees of around 10 million naira after a meeting with top officials of Nasarawa United in Jos recently.

Goal scooped that there has been serious bad blood ever since new club Chairman, Alhaji Abba Yola took up the mantle. It was said that the new helmsman preferred the hiring of a top coach to head Ganaru despite his good work on the team in the last two years that he had worked as the head coach.
