Dutch authorities charge De Kruif
Technical adviser of Heartland, Lodewijk De Kruif will face charges over failure to meet financial obligations in his home land on July 31.
The Dutchman exclusively told SuperSport.com that he will leave for the Netherlands on Saturday ahead of the hearing next Tuesday.
“I was owed salaries for the last three months of 2011 by Heartland and that is why I am in this problem right now. In my country, failure to pay your bills, mortgages and kids’ fees for three consecutive months will see the authorities charge you.
“I have already gone to court twice to face these charges and this is the third time I would be going to Holland,” he said.
The 42-year-old is keen to "get things sorted immediately" and return to steer the ship of the Naze Millionaires.
“The hearing on Tuesday will be in the City of Lunteren (near the Gelderand province in the Netherlands) and I hope to get things sorted out immediately.
“I have already showed the authorities in Holland proof that I work in Nigeria and was owed for the months in question which explains why I failed to pay my bills,” he said.
De Kruif joined Heartland in 2011 and led them to success in that year’s edition of Nigeria’s oldest football competition, the Federation Cup.
