Chukwu excited with Nigerian league improvements

16 October 2015, 11:46

Lagos - Nigerian league legend, Christian Chukwu has hailed the improvements recorded in the league recently, and believes the golden era of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) has been gradually restored.

The former Enugu Rangers and Heartland Coach attributed 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," Chukwu told the league website.

"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 also commended the quality of officiating, which he believes is one of the reasons the games are attracting more followership.

"What fascinates me is that more people are now storming the Stadia to watch our league. I have watched some high quality NPL matches this season and the tie between Rangers and Warri Wolves was another fantastic encounter. It's as if the game should not end because of its sweetness", Chukwu, added.
