I did not discredit referees – Boboye

The Technical Adviser of Plateau United Football Club, Kennedy Boboye, has debunked claims in a section of the media suggesting that he said referees in the Nigeria Professional Football League have failed to be on top of their game.

Boboye who spoke through the Media Officer of the club, Albert Dakup, noted with dismay that the statement was quoted out of context.

He explained that it is not in his character nor that of the club to complain about referees performance stressing that as a major stakeholders in the league, the arbiters have being doing a commendable job so far.

The former Abia Warriors coach who have propelled the Peace Boys to the summit of the league table since the commencement of the season so far, used the medium to appeal to journalists to cross-check their facts before going to press.

Boboye while commending sports writers for doing a good job in propagating the NPFL which has so far attracted crowd back to the stadium called on them not to indulge on unprofessional practice capable of destroying the gains already achieved by the League Management Company in repositioning the elite league.

The Jos city landlords who remained top of the league table with 25 points from 13 matches will be guest of the in-form Mountain of Fire and Miracles of Lagos in one of the Week 14 fixtures slated for the Agege Township Stadium.
