Enyimba defender, Ifeanyi Anaemena has urged the League Management Company not to declare the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season null and void.
He made this known in an interview with Brila.net on Wednesday, where he stated that the effect of the coronavirus also halted football season across the world, of which it was not declared null and void.
Anaemena said it would be a bad decision to call off the football season in the country and urged the NFF and LMC to ignore such calls.
“We can’t afford to call off the season, it would be massive setback and will surely have a big effect on the next few seasons”. he said.
“The season is still very open, we don’t know which club will be champion, teams that be relegated and the continental tickets are still up for grab, so stopping the league will lead to confusion.”
“It’s not the only NPFL that has been affected by the current situation, other countries are still waiting to see how they can finish the season, so I think we should do the same too”. He concluded.
