LMC not fair to Plateau United – Maikaba frowns at ‘playoff’ option

Plateau United coach, Abdul Maikaba has reacted to the possible options on how to conclude the 2019 /2020 NPFL season as pronounced by the LMC Chief Shehu Dikko.

There are growing indications that a “Super 6” mini-tournament will be the vehicle of choice in resolving the 2019-20 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.


In his reaction, Plateau United coach Maikaba said ending the league with a playoff tournament is an unfair treatment to his side considering the 2018 scenario when the League was awarded to Lobi Stars.


“I don’t see a situation where the team with 49 points will be joined with the team on 39 points to play ‘playoff’ together, He told brila.net.


“It’s not even in the rule, so why not stick to the PPG rating and end the league? Why playoff? PPG should be the first option to be considered. Maikaba lamented.


The LMC Boss, Dikko, speaking on Channels Television on Monday, said of the four options to conclude the season being considered, a play-off of the top six teams to decide the champions and continental representatives appears the most likely format to be adopted.
