“Already my club have given me some days off to focus on the wedding. That’s why I was excused from the Charity Cup tie against Kano Pillars to pay undivided attention on my forthcoming wedding the same as the Copa Lagos competition.
“Of course, Haruna will return to Heartland an improved and committed player. At least, the thing that has been a distraction would’ve been over and I’ll focus on my game.
“I’m excited we’ve won our first title heading into the end of the year and I strongly believe the coming season will be more fruitful.
“We’ve done very well at the Federation Cup, I think its time to challenge for the league crown as well as the Caf Confederation Cup titles,” said the former Kano Pillars goal poacher to supersport.com.
Haruna who recently endorsed a new contract paper with his side for the 2012/2013 NPL season was vital in his side back to back win of the 2012 Federation Cup at the expense of Lobi Stars.
