A former Director-General of the defunct National Sports Commission
(NSC), Gbenga Elegbeleye, on Monday said a proper management of the
Nigerian football league was needed now more than ever, reports.


Elegbeleye said that this would help in ensuring that Nigeria wins the next edition of the African Nations Championship (CHAN).

He said Morocco’s success at the 2018 CHAN it hosted goes a long way to show the quality of their league.

The former House of Representatives member said the way the Moroccans managed their league was more professional than what was obtainable in Nigeria.

“We have a lot of talents in this country, but unfortunately we don’t know how to manage it.

“However, I hope that in the next championship in 2020, we would have had a proper management of the Nigerian league so that we can compete and win the trophy,’’ he said.

Morocco outclassed Nigeria in the final played on Sunday, scoring four unreplied goals.
