Uzochukwu calls for better welfare in Nigeria PFL, mentions Saudi Arabia
Former Enugu Rangers footballer, Ugonna Uzochukwu, has made a call to the Nigeria League Management Committee (LMC), to place better focus on the welfare of domestic players.
Uzochukwu, who has also played in South Africa, Jordan and Morocco, identified Saudi Arabian League as the administration that the Nigeria Professional Football League should look to.
“We have to step up and we have a lot of work to do in terms of welfare of players in the NPFL. Saudi Arabian league is far better in all areas than the Nigerian League.
“The LMC and club owners need to understand that player welfare is the most important thing to keep players from leaving and it will equally grow the league,” added the 27-year-old who plays for Al-Washm.
