The current AI ITTFAQ Football Club (FC) of Dubai coach and  Youth Sports Federation Of Nigeria (YSFON ) Grassroots Sports Ambassador to Kaduna State, Anyanwu described what happened in Kaduna last weekend between Kano Pillars and Akwa United as a broad day robbery.

“Corrupt match officials have been the major hinderance to football growth in Nigeria especially in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL). Most referees have played a major role, negatively, in deciding who wins the league,” he said.

Expressing his displeasure , Anyanwu said “In the game of football today in Nigeria, coaches do not do much technically and tactically, they believe the referee, who has the juice and power, can award them a penalty late in the game for all three points or equally disallowed their opponent goal.

Because of this, development of the game has been marred and the game brought to disrepute by unscrupulous elements who call themselves match officials.”
