Katsina United under fire for improvised medical facility


Nigeria Professional Football League club, Katsina United has been ridiculed for the location and facilities available for their medicals with newly-signed players.

One of the photographs that made the rounds on social media had the Super Eagles goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa shirtless laying on a bed in what seemed like a small hotel room. The dimly-lit and poor quality picture was posted by the social media handle of Katsina United much to the chagrin of commentators.

While Ezenwa’s picture chafed many, a second picture of an unidentified player laying face-up on an uncovered foam evoked a stronger emotion from commenters — a heady mix of astonishment and deep disappointment. The player had the sensory devices hooked to his chest but incredulously wasn’t provided with a bed with sheets.

It follows the series of disappointment the league has served in recent months. From abruptly ending the league, presenting a risible abridged version, the indecision that has followed the league’s resumption and the hot mess the Nigeria Nationwide League (NNL), the nation’s second tier, has served up.
