“Danjuma is back to the team after his work with Nigeria’s Under17 women's national team. He’s a former player of the team and we’re happy to have him back,” Bewarang told supersport.com.

Speaking on the position of former Under17 and Under20 international, Patrick Mancha, who led the team to the last eight in the Federation Cup, Bewarang said: “Mancha is still with Plateau United. He will work under Danjuma as chief coach.
