Speaking to SHOT! in Abuja the former FC Abuja and Enyimba FC tactician said he decided to resign as coach of Pillars due to what he termed as unfavourable working conditions.
Maikaba explained that things were not working out again for the club but instead of taking a good look at the causes, members of the technical crew were always used as the scapegoats.
He maintained that a situation whereby the technical crew continued to do its best yet was vilified at every given opportunity was not encouraging.
“I was not sacked. I stepped down from my position voluntarily. Although the management did not want to accept my resignation, when it was clear that I had made up my mind to leave, they accepted my decision.
“I had to quit because things were not working out well for the team. There are things I don’t want to discuss here but let me say most times, the coaching crew was used as scapegoat”, he said.
Maikaba said his resignation has given him time to concentrate on his pet project, FC Hearts football academy in Kano.
“I am still a civil servant. I went to Pillars on secondment. At the moment, I am training players in my football academy, FC Hearts”.
Maikaba however said he is not done with coaching as a good offer from any of the premier league clubs would get his attention.
