Cooreman May Dump Kaduna Utd

Belgian coach, Maurice Cooreman, could once again be on his way out of Kaduna United after it emerged at the weekend that he is unhappy with the way things have panned out at the side.
In spite of the truce called by the chairman of Kaduna United, Sabo Babayaro, last week to end the in-fighting that broke out in the coaching crew of the club, Cooreman is said to have showed his displeasure over the attitude of his assistants to the course of the side.
An official of the club disclosed to that it is a matter of time before the 66-year-old Belgian handler decides to dump the club citing in-fighting among the coaching and board members of the club management.
Accusations and counter-accusations were traded among the coaches at the club for trying to influence the selection of the side in its first two matches of the season.
“I can tell you that Cooreman is not happy at all with the way things are going in Kaduna United,” began the official of Kaduna United, who did not want his name revealed by “He is not happy that virtually everyone wants to bring his players to the team or wants his players to play every match of the club.”
It is understood that Cooreman has made it clear to some members of the management that if it fails to stop interfering in his job as head coach by trying to influence the selection of the club before Premier League games.
The former Bendel Insurance and Gabros International coach is also believed to have been handicapped by the poor quality of players at his disposal since the club had recruited the playing personnel before he was hired in late August by Kaduna United.
But Babayaro told that the issue over Cooreman’s difference with his assistants and some of the members of the club management had been resolved.
He pointed out that all the angry parties in the misunderstanding were given the chance to explain their grievances.
Babayaro, who is also a board member of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL), played down the fact that Cooreman could dump the club over the issue that brewed at the start of this season.
“There is no truth that our coach, Maurice Cooreman, wants to leave us. As far as I know, he made it clear that he wanted to stay and did not say anything about leaving soon. We held a meeting last week between the board of the club and the coaches when we discovered that there was a bit of misunderstanding. In that meeting everyone got the chance to speak his mind and now we have resolved the matter and everything is okay again.
“Even in a family, brothers have misunderstanding. Parents have misunderstanding and Kaduna United is a big family of officials and players and such things cannot be ruled out because we are all human beings. But that has been resolved and things are back to normal again,” he assured.
