In the same vein, Heartland FC Coach Fidelis Ilechukwu has called for stability in the schedule and calendar of league games in the NPFL following the newly released date (9th May 2021) for the resumption of the second stanza of the current campaign.
Ilechukwu complained that the newly released date would affect and disrupt the program of any well-structured club while it hands an advantage to those without structure.

“For teams with a good structure they will feel it because they will prepare the players both timing and giving break and everything but when you change it for those that don’t have the structure they have an advantage.
“So it all depends on where you belong. Are you in a well-structured team or otherwise, because with this condition now some teams can still ask players to take more breaks while they recover.
