NPFL: Nasarawa United Protest Against Mfom Udoh’s Highest Goal Scorer Award
…Insist Sunusi Ibrahim Also Scored 10 Goals
Who emerged the highest goal scorer in the 2018/19 Nigeria Professional Football League season is causing a bit of confusion.
While Mfon Udoh is regarded as the top scorer with ten goals and as a result should be awarded the Golden Boot award, Nasarawa United have protested to the League Management Company (LMC) that forward Sunusi Ibrahim scored 10 goals and should be tied with the Akwa United striker as Goal King of the season.
The LMC has thus shifted announcement of the top scorer award till the Super 6 in Lagos next month as they plan to double check their records.
Tasiu Lawal of Katsina United scored nine goals.
The NPFL Goal King will also pocket cash for the Eunisell Boot.
The inaugural winner of the Eunisell Boot was Junior Lokosa, who netted 19 goals and pocketed 3.8 million Naira on account of 200,000 Naira per goal.
