Super Eagles Quartet Osimhen, Maja, Kalu, Simon May Resume Season In France As From April 15
Super Eagles quartet Victor Osimhen, Samuel Kalu, Josh Maja and Moses Simon may resume the French Ligue 1 season as from April 15, 2020,  Ligue de Football Professionnel CEO Didier Quillot and President Nathalie Boy de la Tour hinted while speaking to reporters on Wednesday afternoon.

In response to the health crisis linked to the coronavirus, the LFP's Administrative Council decided on Friday, March 13 to suspend the Ligue 1 and  Ligue 2 championships  until further notice.

For the matchday 29 fixtures, Osimhen's Lille were due to travel to Brest, Simon's Nantes were hosting Nimes while Rennes were guests to Bordeaux before the games were postponed as a precaution.

"We are looking for the best possible solutions, or at least the least bad ones… We have to be exemplary. We want to thank UEFA for postponing the Euros," la Tour told reporters.

"This decision will allow us to have more wiggle room to finish our domestic and European competitions for 2019/20…

"Our priority of priorities is to finish the Ligue 1 Conforama and Dominos Ligue 2. This priority is vital for all French clubs… It is absolutely certain that the league will not be back anytime before 15th April."

Quillot  added : "The aim is to finish by 30th June."

Lille sit fourth in the table with 49 points, one point behind Rennes who occupy the last Champions League spot; Bordeaux and Nantes are 12th and 13th respectively.
