Wikki Tourist FC coach Usman Abdallah has stated that the Nigeria Professional Football League should simply wait until everything is back to normal rather than consider exploring the option of playing behind closed doors when deliberating on finding a way round the Covid-19 pandemic.
Abdallah speaking in a chat with brila.net said there is no point rushing the league when the problem is global and one that affects even CAF if the idea is to rush to meet up with continental calendar.
He added that playing behind closed doors will defeat the essence of football.
“When you look at playing behind closed doors, I think it’s a sign of punishment when you look at playing behind closed doors.
In this case the purpose of football is going to be defeated if it’s going to be played behind closed doors. And again playing behind closed doors what are we rushing for, rushing to meet up with which calendar? This is a global problem, I think the best thing is just to sit down and wait.”
