The General Manager Shooting Stars Sports Club, Rasheed Balogun has confessed with a shattered heart, ‘NFF didn’t structure the Nigeria National League NNL well’.
While reacting to questions posed by journalists on the ever buzzing Soccer Platform, Family United By Football FUBF, the vastly experienced football administrator queried why the elite league management would force its decisions on the second tier league.
“Since the death of NNL supremo, why should the club owners of the Nigeria Professional Football League NPFL be the mouth piece of NNL?” he queried.
Balogun who has worked with Stationary Stores FC and Julius Berger FC both of Lagos insists the NNL management put in place by NFF are not competent enough to run the league.
“lt’s rather unfortunate NFF appointed the calibers of people running the league. Who is to structure the league? Is it clubsides? That’s why NFF needs to put proper structure and mercenaries on ground in the NNL, if they want the league to be properly placed and probably get sponsors in due course,” Ekulekule as he’s fondly called told FUBF.
The lsale Eko born administrator who has also spent time with defunct Dolphins FC fumed at the way the league was halted without due consultations which later transcends to its indefinite suspension long before the outbreak of the novel virus tagged Covid19.
“It is so disappointing that the league was cancelled abruptly without the consultation of the major stakeholders.
“This can only happen in country like ours. It is the right of the leadership of the Nigeria National League to carry all club owners along.
“We have spent a lot of money to prepare for the league and its unbelievable that the main actors weren’t carried along when they made such decision, it’s unfair,” he concluded.
