Coach Kadiri Ikhana has confirmed he has resigned his position at the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC).
The experienced coach joined the Oluyole Warriors at the beginning of the ongoing top flight.
Ikhana said the failure of the management to issue him with a contract paper almost at the end of the first stanza of the league, coupled with the hardship faced by the players, are the reasons he decided to take a walk at the Ibadan Warlords.
“Yes, I have resigned my position at 3SC since two days ago (Friday) and the reasons are not far-fetched.
“The players do not get their salaries as well as match bonuses and I have not been given a contractual paper as we speak (Sunday); that means I was never employed.
“I believe the factors mentioned above are too weighty and enough for one to resign his appointment.
“The reasons stated have made it too difficult to get positive results in the ongoing top flight. How do you expect good responses from the players on an empty stomach.
“I’m a father and leader to the players and their complaints are too touching for me to overlook so I must pay the price.
“I tried my utmost to manage in this tough situation but it is not working as promises for good service have gone unfulfilled.
“I have to take the path of honour to quit because I’m no longer enjoying my work under the prevailing conditions,” said the former Enyimba and Kano Pillars coach to supersport.com.
The Ibadan Landlords have garnered 17 points from a possible 51 in the 17-week Nigerian top flight.
