Former Enugu Rangers and Heartland Coach, Christian Chukwu believes that the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) has improved tremendously in recent times and the golden era is very much in sight.
Chukwu attributed the improvement to the surge in attendance at matches to the reforms in the league which has witnessed strict enforcement of regulations and tasked the League Management Company (LMC) to continue monitoring the remaining games closely to ensure the season ends on a high.
“It is obvious that the Nigeria Premier League is getting better based on what we have witnessed in the past three seasons, and kudos to the organizers for their initiatives”
“The huge presence of spectators at designated League venues these days is an icing on the cake for a high performance and the elite league is now competitive and attractive to watch. I believe with time, the days when Nigerian fans rely on foreign leagues to enjoy good football will be over.” He said
He also commended the quality of officiating, which he believes is one of the reasons the games are attracting more followership.
