Veteran coach Zakary Baraje has revealed he is in talks with Kano Pillars and Katsina United after he quit Plateau United at the end of the past season.
In a brief chat, the coach who led Akwa United win last year’s Federation Cup, said that talks are still going on with Kano Pillars, but they are yet to get to a maturity stage.
“Kano Pillars and I are still at the stage of courtship but nothing tangible has come out of our discussions yet,” he said.
“I have also been having preliminary talks with Katsina United. We are also yet to come to terms and concretize the arrangements, but whichever pulls through any moment from now is where I will be headed.”
Baraje has previously handled Katsina United and was quick to dispel fears on whether he would be able to steer the newly promoted team to safety, stating that they only need to act fast, since they have only just been promoted.
“I don’t think there is any cause for alarm handling a newly promoted side. They only need to act fast so work can start in earnest,” he said.
“Pillars are quite different because they already have a team who are competing in the league, so it won’t be difficult getting them up and running again.”
