Rangers Int’l In Talks With Plateau’s Fidelis Ilechukwu to replace Departed Abdul Maikaba

Plateau United head coach Fidelis Ilechukwu has confirmed he is in talks with Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) giants Rangers International to be their next head coach.

The former MFM FC and Heartland FC gaffer is set to leave Plateau United at the expiration of his contract. 

However, the young tactician has now confirmed to be in talks with the seven-time NPFL champions, as a replacement for Abdul Maikaba, who will leave the club at the expiration of his contract. 

Speaking exclusively to The Athletic NG, Ilechukwu confirmed he is in talks with the Flying Antelopes.

“Yes, I can confirm that I’m in talks with Rangers Int’l,” said IIechukwu. 

“However, I’m still the Plateau United coach at the moment, though I have seen news published that I have left the club, which is not a fact. 

“I think it may happen, and may not happen because it is a 50-50 situation.”

Fidelis Ilechukwu led Plateau United to a second-placed finish in his first season in charge of the club. Before moving to Enugu, he wants to smoothen things with Plateau United. 

“Right now, I’m still in Jos, because I need to sort out a lot of things with Plateau United,” IIechukwu explained. 

“But, any move that would happen with Rangers Int’l, will happen by the first week of next month, but for the moment, I can tell you that I’m in Jos but I’m in talks with Rangers, that is the truth,” he confirmed. 

Despite missing out on the play-off places, Plateau United wants to keep the coach and has opened talks for an improved deal to renew his contract beyond the end of this season.
