Hello guys, the 50th season of the Nigeria Professional Football League is underway. So, in commemoration of the league’s golden anniversary, we will identify the NPFL most expensive teams of the 2019/2020 season.
- Akwa United
Akwa United in recent times has emerged as the destination of choice for some of the best players within the country. The two-time Aiteo Cup winners presently boast of the most expensive squad in the NPFL. This is with the likes of Ifeanyi Ifeanyi, Ubong Friday, Akarandut Orok, Mfon Udoh and a host of others. The ‘Promise Keepers’ are also reputed to have the best welfare package in the country.
Nigeria’s most successful football club comes second with a robust squad which includes some of the best legs in the NPFL. It is not surprising however since almost every league player would love to play at the continental level. The ‘People’s Elephants’ boast of one of the best management in the country.
3. Kano Pillars
The “Sai Masu Gida” are always known to have one of the deepest pockets over the years in the NPFL. The reigning Aiteo Cup champions presently possess the third most valuable squad by our assessment.
4. Lobi Stars
Led by the legendary Gbenga Ogunbote, Lobi parades one of the most expensive squads in the NPFL. The two-time league champions occupy fourth position on our list after adding about 15 fresh legs to their ranks.
5. Plateau United
The 2017 NPFL champions rank fifth on our list. Abdu Maikaba has been able to put together a formidable team that is on track to challenge for a continental place this year.
