Lobi Stars boss, Babaganaru wants return to normal league format


Lobi Stars head coach, Mohammed Babaganaru is hopeful that the Nigeria Premier League will return to its normal format next season.

The Interim Management Committee (IMC) adopted an abridged format this season.

Babaganaru stated that all the teams have been affected by fixture congestion this season.

“I prefer the normal 20 teams league to the abridged league,” he told DAILY POST after his team’s goalless draw against Rivers United.

“The normal league gives you enough time to prepare ahead of your next match.

“In the abridged league if you fail to get it right from the start, that can spell doom at the end of the season.

“The effect of the abridged league with this playoff now is affecting the players as they play every 48hrs.

“Fatique is really affecting them that’s why we’re experiencing draw matches.”
