Plateau United manager Abul Maikaba has expresses his displeasure on the proposed NPFL 6 playoffs set to hold in Benin, Edo State.
The proposed playoffs which is yet to be approved by the Federal government will determine Nigeria’s elite league champions and also gives the clubs an opportunity to represent in this year’s CAF inter-club competitions.
Plateau United top the Nigeria Professional Football League standings with 49 points, follow by Rivers United with 45 points and Lobi Stars with 43 points before the outbreak of COVID-19 which forced the league to be put onhold.
The former Wikki Tourists tactician disclosed that, He is not happy with the proposed Top Six playoffs.
“I don’t see a situation where the team with 49 points will be joined with the team on 39 points to play ‘playoff’ together”.
The former Akwa United head coach believes that the PPG should be given priority and not the proposed playoffs.
“It’s not even in the rule, so why not stick to the PPG rating and end the league? Why playoff? PPG should be the first option to be considered.” Maikaba added.
