Why Naze Millionaires Sacked Me – Emeteole

Sacked head coach of Heartland Football Club, Kelechi Emeteole, has given reason for his dismissal by the club just before the just-concluded Premier League season.
The former El Kanemi Warriors’ coach said that his sack had nothing to do with the performance of the team on the pitch but off it.
He explained further that his continuous plea with the club over the welfare of players got him into trouble with the management board.
"My players were always demanding because they owe them a lot, the players were always going on strike." Emeteole told BBC Sport.
"And they [club management] said that I and my chief coach are the brain behind it, that we instigated it.
"But we have been doing a lot to make sure they carry on until money is available," he continued.
Emeteole said he is concerned about the timing of his sack.
"The coach that is coming is good, but the problem is the timing. I don't see how he can do magic to succeed.
"But you know Nigeria that's our mentality. You saw what happened to the guy that qualified us to the World Cup.
"But at the end they removed him and you see how our team did in South Africa. I just pray that doesn't happen to Heartland.
"Having reached the final last year, my expectation was that we would have to do everything possible to take the trophy this year."
