NPFL: I am Not In Contract With Heartland – Ramson Madu (AUDIO)

Head coach of struggling Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side Heartland, Ramson Madu has revealed he has no contract with the ‘Naze Millionaires’, adding that he is on ‘secondment’ at the club and only earns allowances.

After guiding Heartland back to the NPFL from the Nigeria National League, Madu and his Heartland side have found life difficult in the topflight, with the former champions placed 16th on the league standings with 13 points from 11 matches.

Reacting to his team’s 3-0 thumping at MFM FC on Sunday, the former defender sensationally declared that he is not a direct employee of the Owerri-based club.

“I am on secondment to Heartland; I’m a sports council coach. I am not in contract with Heartland,” he disclosed. “They (Heartland) are not my employer; I’m a sports council coach.

“So I am there on secondment. They pay me allowance but, I’m doing a job, a big job like a technical adviser.”

On what could be done to improve the fortunes of the club in the NPFL, Madu said: “We have to reshuffle the team, you know, we have to reshuffle the team.

“And look for tested players and players that have mind to play.”
