The sack game in the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL continued on Monday as new promoted Plateau United asked their Coach, Zachary Baraje to step aside.
Baraje who last worked with Akwa United before joining the Jos-based side was among other things accused of running a one man show.
The fact that results were no longer going the way of Baraje also contributed to his sacking on Monday.
Plateau United Media Officer; Albert Dakup said former skipper and the Youth Team Coach Victor Wickadason will temporarily replace Baraje before a capable replacement is named.
“Yes, it is true that Baraje has been told to step aside because of poor results,” Dakup stated
“The Coach was majorly accused of running a man show and that he doesn’t carry his other coaches along in the scheme of things.
“At the moment, 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.” The Club spokesperson concluded.
Baraje who last worked with Akwa United where he won the Federation Cup has also worked with clubs like Enyimba and Nasarawa United among others,
The straw that broke the camel’s back for Baraje was his team’s disappointing 1-1 draw at home on Sunday against El Kanem.
Plateau United who are only returning to the elite cadre after five years are presently 13th on the league table with 21 points from 17 games.
