MFM FC Defeats Heartland FC 3-0
The Super Eagles’ coach, Gernot Rohr have revealed that Nigerian league will get better if the games are played on grass pitches and not synthetic pitches as the case is.
The Super Eagles coach made this known at the end of the NPFL Match Day 12 fixture between Lagos-based MFM FC and Heartland FC of Owerri at Agege Stadium.
According to him, “I am here to see MFM FC play once again after the CAF Champions League fixture which they won. I am also here to see the other team, Heartland FC.”
“What I also noticed is that the league is being played on synthetic pitches. That is old-fashioned because the sun is not favourable playing on such turf.”
“Synthetic pitches are hot during the sun and it is not the best for the players,’’ he said. Rohr said he would like to see other players outside the ones he had shortlisted for the upcoming Super Eagles’ matches, so as to see their level of commitment and play.”
“I am not here to see those players on my list, but discover more players and to see the level of the league, which is better for me. “I want to see those that are doing better and to discover other teams. This is where I can watch the team play because there are no NPFL clubs playing in Abuja.”
“The level of the league is interesting and I must commend the teams for their good spirit, though none of the players are in my list,’’ he said.
MFM FC won the match beating Heartland FC 3-0.
