Heartland is 30 percent ready for the new NPFL season – Coach mehmet Tayfun .


The mew head coach of Heartland football of Owerri spoke with www.footballlive.ng after his team played out to 1-1 draw with MFM of lagos.

Really  these tournament is helping us so much to see our weakness and strong sides,  i see this tournament as a preparatory forum for the teams.

Our game against MFM was very intresting though it ended in a draw,  there was lesser tussles and better coordination.

Our opponents MFM  , they are a good side, with good  character of play i appreciate them and also my team too.

With the players i met on ground, they are just 30%   ready, i have to really work on them so much, I have set time to do so before the league commences.

Honestly i have to thank the organizer for putting up such a wonderful tournament which is helping us so much to ascertain the team to take shape  to required standard.

It’s being barely two weeks i took over as the head coach, though i was here last season, we have a lot of new players, we need to blend with couples of old players in the team already.

The new foreign gaffer of heartland Fc concluded by saying i am overwhelmed by the supporters who came out to watch Governor Wike unity cup in port.
