Warri Wolves General Manager, Tony Rafua has said that the Nigeria Premier League is still on a low side, stressing that at this stage of the League, things would have improved better for it to be compared to other leagues in the world.
"Honestly speaking, I'm not too impressed with the running of the league so far. A lot of things have not been put right the way a true professional league should be," he told Inside Out Premier League in Ado Ekiti.
Continuing he said, " It is unfortunate that many people have lost faith in the whole setting . But then, since we are earning our living from it, we want to continue to do the necessary things that would enable the league grow.
"I can not imagine a situation where league matches are always moved backward or suspended for no reason. As it is said that the league has gotten to Week 28 but most of the clubs have not played their outstanding games, how then can one justify that? For me, whenever we are called upon to play we will play but in my own view I don't think is the best for the league.
I also think if the calender can be harmonised, the idea of rescheduling matches at will would be done in proper order,"he said.
Stressing that club owners who invest heavily on their clubs get little, he said, "I'm not speaking for Warri Wolves but as a stakeholder of the NPL, my annoyance is that the clubs invest so much but get little from the organiser of the league which is so painful and discouraging.
Football is supposed to be a money spinning venture all over the world but unfortunately in Nigeria, it is a money sucking venture. And until we come out to tell ourselves the truth, the league will still remain the same," he concluded.
