Heartland FC players in trouble after 1-5 loss to Plateau United

Placed on half pay with notice for further sanctions

After suffering a 1-5 home loss to Plateau United in the Nigeria Premier Football League, players of Heartland FC have encountered more problems with the managements decision to slash their pay.

The Naze Millionaires fell flat at home on matchday 22 of the league losing 1-5 to the visiting Plateau United FC.

In swift reaction, Heartland FC through its General Manager Promise Nwachukwu have notified the players of financial sanctions to the embarassing outing.

Promise Nwachukwu while speaking to the club media after the game said that the players must improve on their performance or face further sanctions.

“The club management has decided to slash the salaries of the players by half as from now henceforth until the team’s performance improves,” Nwachukwu told the club’s media.

“I was just deeply rooted to one spot after the game on Wednesday and was the last to leave the stadium because I could not have envisaged the poor performance the players exhibited against Plateau United. They played as if nothing was at stake and as If they were bereft of ideas.

“In all my time at the club, I have never seen a time Heartland FC played so poorly. This is beyond coaching issue and it is time the players took the blame for the defeat and try to redeem their image with a win against Sunshine Stars on Sunday.

“The task to keep Heartland FC in the topflight is the job of all it is our desire to have players who are proud to play for what the badge represents and its rich history right from Spartans to Iwuanyanwu Nationale and what we are known as now, Heartland FC”, the statement read.

Heartland FC have been poor this season and currently sit bottom of the standings and in danger of relegation to the second tier.
