In a telephone chat with DREAM SPORTS CENTER, the former MFM gaffer believes that it is up to the League Management Compamy (LMC) to decide the fate of the league. If they decide to award Plateau United the NPFL title, it’s acceptable by him because they have been dominant in almost of every game this season.
But if they decide that the league should played behind closed so as to conclude the season, the team have no objections rather than to comply. Recall that the 2017 NPFL champions have won 14 games, drawn 7 and lost 4 of their 25 games, and recorded the best away result this season.
