Kennedy Boboye against cancelation of the NPFL

Akwa United coach Kennedy Boboye is hoping the Nigerian football league season is not cancelled.

Akwa United head coach Kennedy Boboye says he misses football and can’t wait to get back to work after the current global pandemic is over.

Nigeria’s professional football league was suspended indefinitely back in March in order to curb the widespread of the coronavirus which has also affected various leagues in Europe.

Following the suspension of the campaign, all 20 the teams in the domestic league had since embarked on an indefinite break and no date of possible return yet.

Boboye, however, said he’s growing frustrated with the current lack of opportunities to work with his players and also compete for points in the league.

Boboye also added that he hopes that this season Nigeria professional football league will be concluded.

“I’ve really missed the beautiful game, my players & how I would scream out instructions to my team from the sideline. I’m patiently waiting for football to return as soon as possible. More importantly, I hope the NPFL is concluded and not canceled. May God heal the world” he said.

Akwa United are currently sixth on the log of the premier league table with 36 points from 25 matches played so far.

The promise keepers are still in the title race with 13 matches left to play.
