NPFL: Afelokhai Throw Weight Behind Club Chairmen Decisions
By Sampson Adedeji
As the debates continue over the decisions of the Nigeria Professional Football League Club Chairmen to end the season, Enyimba International goalkeeper Theophilus Afelokhai has said that the decision is right.
After three rounds of voting, club chairmen on Wednesday agreed to end the season and used Point Per Game to determine teams that will represent the country after corona virus halted the league.
The former Kano Pillars shot stopper believed that the pandemic is still ravaging the country and it’s not safe to continue the league.
“Every decision taken by the club Chairmen is not bad, all we need now is for the League Management Company (LMC) to do the right thing by deciding on the teams to represent the country on the continent,”
”When you move around other states in the country you will discover that this virus is still like a wildfire, we ‘ve been unable to flatten the COVID19 curve in Nigeria.
”You cannot say the league should be continued and expects players to travel to such states to play football, it is going to be a big risk for everyone involved,” he told Brila radio.
