NPFL: Akwa United coach Kennedy Boboye charged by LMC

Akwa United head coach Kennedy Boboye has been charged by the League Management Company (LMC) in relation to the comments he made after his side’s 1-2 loss to Heartland FC on Sunday, www.aclsports.com reports.

Boboye’s team led 0-1 at half time at the Dan Anyiam Stadium but conceded two controversial goals in the second half, the first, a penalty converted by Samuel Nnoshiri and a late strike by Nduka Eze which got Boboye enraged after the game.

“It’s a shame. I honestly don’t have anything to say because we can never grow with officiating like this. It is a shame to Nigerian football that we are on this level,” Boboye told journalists after the game.

The LMC, organisers of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) have now charged the former league winner of breaching paragraph 7, Appendix B (Code of Conduct for Managers and Coaches) in the rules and framework guiding the league.

Boboye has been given forty-eight (48) hours to either accept the charge or elect to face a Commission. The punishment attached to the charge is a fine of N250,000 naira and one-game touchline ban which is effective immediately.

Akwa United have only won one out of their six league matches this term and have failed to win any of their last three league games. Up next for the Promise Keepers is a home game against Kano Pillars on Saturday.
