“I do not have any problem with the date that has been suggested by the LMC for the start of the league season,” Ilechukwu told DaSportstainment247.com.
“It is a blessing for us that we now know when the season will start and what to do with our time. We are working on ensuring that we havea well-prepared team for the season. It is our mission that we do not want Heartland to struggle in the coming season.
“We are about having our programme for the preseason approved by the club top officials. We hope to hit the ground running almost afterthis. We do not have much time to waste again.”
