The absence of these games therefore bars fans from interacting and enjoying the heated arguments that come in handy whenever supremacy topics arise.
One such fan identified as Ambani confessed that life is boring without a game to catch up with during the weekends.
“I feel so bored when there’s no premier league game to watch during the weekends…I mean it’s the only time I catch up with friends and talk football,” he said.
