Nigeria Libero player, Jummai Bitrus told www.aclsports.com that she is eager to play competitive volleyball. Bitrus won the 2019 Nigeria Volleyball Premier League with Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corp (NSCDC) Volleyball Club.
She revealed that not playing volleyball for over six months has affected her psychological.
Bitrus said, “I just want to play competitive volleyball before the end of 2019. Some senior volleyball players were lucky to play at the 2020 President Beach Volleyball Cup in Kaduna but others could not participate in indoor games due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Staying 6 months without playing intense games on the court is affecting me psychological. I see myself playing National Championship and African Club Championship in my dreams. I wake up and start laughing at myself because I have truly missed playing”. She pleaded with the League Management Committee (LMC) of the Nigeria Volleyball Premier League to organise just a phase in order for top athletes to play before the year runs out.
The former Adamawa Queens player said, “My appeal to the LMC of the Nigeria Volleyball Premier League is for them to organise one phase for us so that we can play. I am sure if a date is fixed for the league; everyone including our coaches will be super excited”.
Bitrus was adjudged the best Libero player in country at the 2019 Nigeria Volleyball Premier League in Abuja.
