Heartland of Owerri Technical Adviser, Turkish Mehmet Tayfun and head coach of the once dreaded Naze Millionaires, Ramson Madu, on Monday March 11, 2019, returned to their duty posts after a two-week suspension following lack of cordial working relationship between the duo, completesports.com reports.
The hierarchy of the club had asked the two gaffers to step aside until they resolve their differences which was understood to be negatively affecting the club’s NPFL campaign despite a bright start to the season.
But after garnering just two points from a possible nine in their last three games in which they drew 1-1 in back-to-back home games and a 3-0 away slump at El-Kanemi Warriors, officials traced the problem to the door step of the two coaches who they accused of working at cross purposes.
“As a result, management asked them to step aside until they reconcile amongst themselves,” an official explained without wanting to be named.
“They were told to report back to the management after deciding to let bypast to be bypast.
“And I think that has been done because they have resumed training at the club’s base in Okigwe”.
On his part, Tayfun confirmed to completesports.com that there was an issue with his subordinate and assured it has been resolved.
“Yeah, there was an issue. It has been sorted,” Tayfun said when we contacted him on his mobile phone.
