Football: Allow Experts To Run Clubs – Onigbinde


Former Super Eagles coach Adegboye Onigbide, has blamed those he described as ‘apprentice administrators’ for the loss of two spots in the Confederation of Africa Football CAF championships, saying these ‘novices’ running the Nigeria Football Professional League clubs are administrators with little or no knowledge of the game.

CAF recently reduced the number of spots for Nigeria’s clubs in the continental championships from four to two due to their abysmal performance in the 2017/2018 season.

Lobi Stars and Enugu Rangers are the only clubs that will host the nation’s flag at both the CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup competitions, which the nation had enjoyed over the years.

Onigbinde said as long as the running of clubs are left in the hands of party loyalists and not technocrats, there would continue to be a dip in the country’s club football, adding those who understand the game should be given opportunity to offer themselves for election into the boards of these clubs.
