Booters appeal to BFF to start next season’s BPL early


DHAKA, June 19, 2020 (BSS) – The national booters appealed the
Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) to start the next season’s
Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) as early as possible because they are
already affected after this season’s league was abandoned in the
middle due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The booters said they run their families by playing the league and
if the BFF announce the date to start the league it, it would ease
their mental pressure.

Midfielder Shohel Rana through a video message today said: “Due to
cancellation of BPL this season for pandemic COVID-19 situation, I
have a humble request to BFF to take an early decision about the next
season’s BPL. It is very important for us because we run our family by
playing league …… if we get a probable date about the next league,
it will reduce our mental tension.”

On the other hand, midfielder Abdullah said due to cancellations of
this season’s league we all request the BFF to start the next season
league as early as possible. It would hamper our performance if there
is long gap to arrange of the league. It will be very tough to keep
fitness level up without playing league and matches.”

Abdullah said BPL League is very important for them to increase the
level competition as well as the Bangladesh national football team.

“So we all players request the BFF to take a decision about the
league and discuss the matter with clubs, players and concern people
together for the betterment of football so that no one is affected by
the decision of BFF,” he said.
