Sounds like it and he is really upset. They will frustrate the guy and send him back to Spain.

They're corrupt to the bone. 200m people as they like to boast, not 1 single ref is good enough for Afcon. Let that sink in! Not 1.

Finidi is somewhat right when he alludes to the fact that the only hope in reducing these things is for journalists to be more explicit about it and stop acting like it’s not their job to point it out.

I don’t see any other hope

This is the reason we don't have referees in the FIFA Organized matches. Our Referees are still working for their stomachs; just like the Nigerian Police. 35 Fouls for one side that lost the game eventually? The World takes note of small things, and we sometimes wonder why there are no Nigerian Refs in World Cup and CAF.

The NPFL officiating is a huge joke. The rate of home wins is usually off the chart is a key give away to the shenanigans. I once did a statistical calculation on this and it is on my blogsite Eagles etcetera. The stats show an incredibly high percentage of home wins and a clear outlier when compared to other leagues which is a clear giveaway that something unusual is going on

What do we expect would happen when our league association owes referees for at least 2 years.

The same association also can't protect them from actions like this:

The data is possibly older than two years oooo! However, I believe the nonsense refereeing is a result of poor security at venues and at the time remuneration being paid by home team. The data was way too striking when compared to multiple other leagues. It clearly was not happenstance. SeSons end with only few points separating the bottom team from the champion. Big giveaway!!!

Well, I heard on Brilla FM just last month that our league referees are owed at least 2 years wages. That is scandalous.

Hmmm, the whistle had blown before the goal though abi? And backing into a player like that in the box rather than going for the ball could be called as a foul by the ref. Is this the only evidence? The journalist need to be compiling clear video evidence of this and publicize it. This is just sad, but what else do we expect in the jungle...

And yet some peeps fully expect to be able to produce international level coaches and players from the same league...

It's quite clear Finidi's imprint on this team but there just seems to be a clear lack of ruthlessness in the final third, and when you add a leaky defense to that its no surprise why currently they're 8th on the table. If it was any other NPFL coach getting these results with Enyimba, they'd already be shown the exit door, so hopefully he can use this grace period to sort out these issues.
