To change the dwindling fortunes of Heartland FC in the ongoing 2023/24 Nigeria Premier Football League season, the management of the five times league champions, has announced the employment of Kennedy Boboye as the club’s new Technical Adviser.
He has replaced erstwhile coach, Christian Obi who until the development failed to win a game from opening nine matches of the season.
Boboye who has signed a one year renewable contract with the Naze Millionaires has come to the Owerri side with the impeccable record of winning the league title twice with Plateau United (2017) and Akwa United (2021).
The former Remo Stars gaffer’s first target will be to ensure Heartland FC start winning their league games from the weekend blockbuster Oriental derby tie with Enyimba in Owerri and Boboye in his first interview with Heartland FC Media said he is aware of the enormity of the task before him.
“I am ready for the task. I had different thoughts when I was contacted initially because of the club’s position on the league table but with what I have seen on ground I am certain we can pull through,” Boboye told Heartland FC Media.
“We need everyone to get to work. You are going to be seeing a new mentality in the team. The players have assured there would be changes and I am excited to be here.”
In the other shake up in the team, Charles Uzor has been elevated to the position of the Head Coach as Willie Udube’s replacement.
Also, Osuorji Linus Maduabuchi is now the new Team Manager. He was the club’s Assistant Team Manager before the new change. He is replacing Victor Ezuruike who has been redeployed to the club’s feeder team.
The head coach of the Heartland FC Feeder team, Chidi Ike has been sent to the Heartland FC main team to also fortified the technical crew.
