🇳🇬🗣 Ekpo says Imama was wrong about local players

The arguments over the quality of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) players shows no signs of a near end.

The latest strong comments have come from Friday Ekpo. The former Super Eagles international has specifically responded to Nigeria B team coach Imama Amapakabo. The latter made headlines last month after declaring that NPFL coaches and players simply have poor tactical education and therefore require urgent training.

“I want to correct an impression, Imama and many of us started here, but it didn’t take long for us to grasp the different game strategies and tactics taught,” Ekpo told Brila.

Imama’s side are currently campaigning for CHAN 2020, though they have their backs against the wall after a first-leg 4-1 defeat from Togo.

“His team lost twice to Togo, and while many have blamed the players I also want us to know that the non-active league is a problem.”

“Where I could agree with him is that Coaches also could use going on refresher courses. This certainly helps a lot especially in terms of understanding what new ways one can improve and players also improve today,” concluded Ekpo.
