Empty promises forced me to dump United

Maurice Cooreman quit Kaduna United due to empty promises

Posted: 7 March 2012 Time: 09:31 am

Warri Wolves coach Maurice Cooreman has told Goal.com why he decided to call it quits with his former club Kaduna United.  

He revealed that he had to look for another job because he was tired with always waiting to hear what the management of the Kaduna club would tell him.   "It was a very frustrating moment for me. At the beginning of this season, I had a meeting with the management and they assured me that the State Government is ready to support the team.   "I was also privileged to meet with some senior government officials and the assurance was that all will be well. Before I knew what was happening, without my knowledge they sold over 16 players. I decided I will still wait for them. But when it was becoming too much and there was no clear cut approach to how we were going to prepare for the season, I did some rethink and thereafter decided that I must leave the team.   "At this time, the season started and I barely could raise a team to play the first game against Jigawa Golden Stars. The promises kept coming that my contract is secure that I will recruit good players when at this time the first round of matches had been played.   "It got to a point where I could not bear it any longer and decided that I must look for a team that will always promise me that all will be well without any action.   "Warri Wolves came calling and I did not hesitate to move because I know they will surely be better than Kaduna United," Cooreman said.

Maurice Cooreman, John Mastroudes and Clement Westerhoff all still working in Nigeria might aswell be more experienced and far better than our local Super Eagles coaches in recent times but sentiments wouldn't let the glass house look towards their direction.

It might be hard to take for some folks but that doesn't take anything away from the truth. I rather put my money on them.

With the poor performance in Rwanda, there is no guaranttee that the table would be turned in Abuja. Anything can happen, a score draw or something along that line.
And here we are talking about Rwanda, a country devastated and reduced to nothing by endless wars and uprisings, what about playing away to Cameroon, CIV, Ghana, Egypt, Algeria etc ?

If you can't run with men on foot, how then can you contend with horses?

What do you expect Mr. Cooreman, when the Kaduna State government sponsors more on Boko haram than football?
