Sharks
FC midfielder, Chiamaka Madu has described the 2013/14 Nigeria Professional
Football League (NPFL) season as a good one but believes there is still room
for improvement.
Sharks
finished 13th at the end of the season despite been on top of the
table for several weeks and going on a 10-match unbeaten run.
The
former Ocean Boys midfielder says the organization of the League last season
was better than what was obtainable in the past, especially with 24 away wins.
Though
Sharks lost twice at home to Akwa United and FC Taraba on the last day of the
season, the enterprising midfielder also praised the match officials for
improved officiating.
“The
League last year was not a bad one. The League Management Company tried it to
make it the best,” Madu told Naijafootball247.com.
“The
officiating was really OK. They (LMC) are in a building process. I hope the
coming season will be better than the last season,” he added.
Ahead
of the upcoming 2014/15 season, the former Ocean Boys player however wants to
see increased Television coverage of live matches, improved welfare for players
and adequate security for match officials.
“I
want to see most matches televised as this will help people see the beauty of
the game.
“The
referees should be adequately protected too. If that is done, they will give
their best.
“They
(the Clubs) should take care of the players’ welfare in order to avoid the
strikes and protests we experienced last season. You cannot see the best of the
players when they are not happy,” Madu stated.
