Nigeria Premier League side, Plateau United have fired manager, Zachary Baraje following series of poor performances by the Jos based side.

The move follows their 1-1 draw at home to El-Kanemi Warriors on Sunday.

It was also reported that Baraje lost his place due to his inability to work with his other coaches in the team.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Media Officer of the club, Mr Albert Dakup, in Jos on Monday.

Dakup noted that the decision became necessary in view of the dwindling performance of the team.

“I want to inform you that Baraje has been told to step aside because of poor results,” Dakup said.

“He was accused of running a man show and that he doesn’t carry his other coaches along in the scheme of things.

Former captain of the team, Victor Wikadason, will temporarily replace Baraje before a capable replacement is named.

“We have told Victor Wikadson to step in as the temporary coach and we shall name our new technical adviser very soon. Our team left for Owerri Monday morning ahead of Wednesday NPFL Match Day 18 tie against Heartland,” he added.

Wikadason will be assisted by Audu Isa Pele, Morris Longmiap, and Tunde Adedara as goalkeeper trainers.

Baraje who replaced Bala Nkiyu as manager of the Jos club, managed just 21 points from 17 games this season, leaving his side languishing in 14th place.
