By Amaechi Agbo
The league Management Company, LMC have warned Enyimba FC coach, Finidi George from making repugnant comments about the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL of face sanctions, www.beatchoiceaports.com.ng can report.
The League organisers handed the warning on Friday following observed breaches of sections of the NPFL Rules and Framework, that are capable of bringing the league to disrepute and smooth organization.
Enyimba coach, Mr George cast aspersions on the league officiating after he threatened to leave the domestic league following controversial calls by the centre referee in charge of Heartland vs Enyimba in Owerri last weekend.
“You are therefore advised to desist from making such comments as a future reoccurrence of this conduct could result in appropriate sanctions against you”, the memo by LMC stated.
Similarly, the LMC have called on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the Referee Appointment Committee to review the performance of Match Officials in the Heartland vs Enyimba Matchday 15 fixture.
The LMC have requested the review of performance of Referee Adebimpe Quadri of the Lagos State Referees Council which it believed might have incited incidents of security breaches and misconduct among supporters and club officials during the Enyimba-Heartaland clash in Owerri
“We also request a review of the suitability of the Referee for further matches in the Nigeria Professional Football League”, the LMC wrote.
Meanwhile, Match Commissioner Kingsley Uduh of Anambra State Football Association was commended for his exercise of discretion to ensure the proper and smooth organisation of the match between Heartland and Enyimba by halting proceedings until adequate security was provided. He was thus recommended to NFF for further consideration to handle matches of NPFL.
