Dr. Rafiu Ladipo calls for urgent attention to Nigerian football industry

Super-Eagles sqaurd

President General (worldwide) of Nigerian Football and Other Sports Supporters Club Dr. Rafiu Ladipo has stated in clear terms that football in the country is ‘dying’ and needs urgent attention from all and sundry to resuscitate the game.

Speaking on Magic FM’s Football Programme Soccer Swag yesterday, Dr. Lapido blamed journalists, administrators and coaches for the dwindling fortunes of the game in Nigeria.

Amongst the recent misfortunes in Nigerian football was the failure of the Super Falcons to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and the home-based Super Eagles failing to make next year’s CHAN tournament, while the country’s representatives in the CAF inter-club competitions have had a relatively poor outing so far.
