Bosso unsure of NPFL restart; insists clubs can’t afford coronavirus tests


Ladan Bosso has expressed his doubt over the possibility of the resumption of the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) campaign.

The NPFL season was suspended in March as a result of the coronavirus pandemic breakout which also affected every other areas of life.

Meanwhile, the Bundesliga resumed last month and the La Liga will restart on Thursday, June 11 while the Premier League kicks off next week Wednesday.

There have so far been five rounds of tests conducted on all the players in the English top-flight and that has also been the case in Germany and Spain.

Bosso while speaking to Brila 88.9FM on Wednesday, however, said that he is not sure if the NPFL season can get restarted due to some issues.

“I don’t see how the league in Nigeria will get to restart because these clubs cannot afford to conduct the coronavirus test on their players,” he said.

“These tests are very costly and I think it will cost an amount of #2.5m (Two million and five hundred thousand naira) for each club to test their players.”
