Shooting stars General Manager Rasheed Balogun has stated that league cancellation must not be an option as the discussion on how to end the league continues to generate reactions among fans and stakeholders in Nigerian football.
Balogun speaking in a chat with brila.net said the idea of having the NPFL stopped without relegation or promotion of teams from the NNL should be jettisoned as this will be a great disservice to NNL clubs who have spent in preparing for the season and have continued to pay players salaries keeping their teams together in the process.
He alleged that the plan is been masterminded by relegation-threatened teams who want to use that as a means to keep their league positions.
“As far as I am concerned I believe no decision has been taken yet, we have stopped playing since December and since December both private and Government-sponsored clubs have been doing everything humanly possible to play players’ salaries.
If they now say the league is canceled, who wants to be responsible for these players till the beginning of next season. Do you know how much we have spent since last season preparing for this season?
Those people that are masterminding this plan is the combination of those that want to go to relegation from the NPFL.”
