Belgian coach to dump Kaduna Utd
Cooreman on his way out
Last year, Cooreman led unfancied Kaduna to win the Federation Cup at the expense of Enyimba for their first-ever major trophy.
However, MTNFootball.com has since scooped that the highly-experienced coach is far from happy with irregular payments of his salary.
“Cooreman will leave at the end of the season. He has said it repeatedly that he cannot work under the very difficult conditions he has been forced to endure at Kaduna United,” a top source informed.
Only recently there was a rumpus over how much of his one million Naira-a-month salary Cooreman actually receives after a media report suggested he is short changed by as much as 300,000 Naira every month.
Despite official statements to the contrary, the players are owed five months’ salaries after three months’ salaries were cleared only recently.
Officials told MTNFootball.com that the Kaduna State government has insisted it will not release any more funds to the club until they have received a detailed expenditure of the club thus far.
Cooreman led Ocean Boys to win the 2006 league title. He has also worked at Enyimba and Lobi Stars as well as Asante Kotoko in Ghana.
Last season, he was close to joining another Nigeria Premier League side Warri Wolves.
Kaduna United finished bottom of their mini-league group, which included Club Africain (Tunisia), Asec Mimosas (Cote d’Ivoire) and Interclube (Angola) in this year’s CAF Confederation Cup.
