The management of Heartland FC has placed an indefinite suspension on its entire technical crew members following their recent poor performance in the ongoing 2012/13 Glo Premier League (NPL) season.
The Owerri side lost 0-1 against Kwara United in the Glo NPL Matchday 24 encounter at the Dan Anyiam Stadium on Sunday, which was their third home defeat this season after previously losing to newcomers, Nembe City and Enyimba.
The club chairman, Fan Ndubuoke announced the decision shortly after Sunday’s home defeat to Kwara United.
In addition to the indefinite suspension of the technical crew, the salary of members of the entire team was slashed by half until there is notable improvement in results.
Ndubuoke hinted that one of the suspended technical crew members may be recalled or a new tactician may be employed to handle the side for the Glo Premier League Matchday 25 tie at Gombe United on Thursday.
Heartland recently bowed out of the Federation Cup, losing on penalties to Akwa United in the quarter-final at the Ahamdu Bello Stadium in Kaduna.
