Technical Adviser of Heartland FC, Alphonsus Dike left the club following crisis rocking the Owerri, Imo State-based football outfit.

Dike said he decided to call it quit with the club following the “irreconcilable differences” he has the management.

Speaking in Lagos on Tuesday, the respected coach said Heartland is not “ready to do my bidding,” leaving him with no other choice than to leave.

Recall that Dike took over from Bethel Orji on February 28, 2016, following the club’s poor run in the 2015/2016 Nigerian Premier Football League, NPFL.

But Heartland Protocol Officer, Tonex Chukwu, said the club was yet to receive any formal letter from Dike indicating his resignation.

Tonex said, “I am just hearing about the resignation this morning, it is news to me. Other journalists had called me to verify same story too.

“What I know is that he did not travel back with the team from Lagos on Sunday after the Match Day 27 fixture against MFM which we lost.
