Sharks FC's Madu want improvement in League

by Emeka Dennar

Sharks FC midfielder, Chiamaka Madu has described the 2013/14 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season as a good one but believes there is still room for improvement.

Sharks finished 13th at the end of the season despite been on top of the table for several weeks and going on a 10-match unbeaten run.

The former Ocean Boys midfielder says the organization of the League last season was better than what was obtainable in the past, especially with 24 away wins.

Though Sharks lost twice at home to Akwa United and FC Taraba on the last day of the season, the enterprising midfielder also praised the match officials for improved officiating.

“The League last year was not a bad one. The League Management Company tried it to make it the best,” Madu told

“The officiating was really OK. They (LMC) are in a building process. I hope the coming season will be better than the last season,” he added.

Ahead of the upcoming 2014/15 season, the former Ocean Boys player however wants to see increased Television coverage of live matches, improved welfare for players and adequate security for match officials.

“I want to see most matches televised as this will help people see the beauty of the game.

“The referees should be adequately protected too. If that is done, they will give their best.

“They (the Clubs) should take care of the players’ welfare in order to avoid the strikes and protests we experienced last season. You cannot see the best of the players when they are not happy,” Madu stated.
