The League Management Company had raised the idea of making it mandatory for clubs to pay players not less than N150,000.

The Nasarawa United FC Chairman, Isaac Danladi, has said the proposed N150,000 for Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL, players as salary is feasible.

Mr. Danladi said on Saturday in Lagos that this would raise the living standards of the players.

The League Management Company, LMC, had raised the idea of making it mandatory for clubs to pay their players not less than N150,000 to improve their living standard.

The chairman added that there should be a mechanism in place to ensure that clubs complied by enforcing it.

“It’ s necessary for us to enforce this to ensure that clubs comply. We in Nasarawa hold our players in high esteem and we do not joke with their welfare.

“It is feasible for clubs to pay that even more. It is possible, if you ask me? I think they deserve more provided that we have the means to pay.

“Although I am not sure that any manager is aware of this proposal, we just read it on the pages of newspapers,” Mr. Danladi said.

The Nasarawa FC boss did not, however, say where the clubs would raise the money.
