Madu focused on his wedding

Heartland coach Ramson Madu has revealed he will only begin preparations ahead of the new Nigerian Premier League season after his wedding on December 30.

The tactician was able to help steer the side clear of relegation last term, having finished the campaign two points clear of the bottom four and he will be looking for an improved showing in the 2014 campaign.

However, Madu admits there is little else on his mind at the moment other than his upcoming nuptials and says he will only be able to give the club his undivided attention once he has tied the knot.

"My immediate concern right now is my upcoming wedding to my spouse, Chioma Ojukwu on Monday, December 30 at the St John's Anglican Church, Owerri," the coach told SuperSport.

"Thereafter I'll now turn undivided attention to preparation for the new season. Right now I can't meaningfully tell you that Heartland are in the fore front preparing for the new season.

"Though skeletal training sessions have been going on among the players mostly the new ones but concerted and purposeful training will commence shortly after my wedding.

"Coach Madu has been blessed off and on the pitch though it may not be too much to expect further blessings after the marriage rite which will make me far better coach than previously."
