Diky said that if the audience was forced to attend the stadium for the remainder of the 2021/22 Liga 1 matches this season, it would be too tight and seem to force. Moreover, this season’s competition only leaves a few games.

“For this season, I think it’s too fast, too imposing. Moreover, this season there are only a few games left, and it’s too narrow. It’s better to try next season,” said Diky.
