Former Flying eagles star Moses Orkuma has given his advice on how the Nigerian leagues can get better.
The 25-year-old made this known in an interview with Sportlens360 when he was asked on ways he feels the Nigerian Professional Football League can be improved.
The former Lobi stars man says Nigerian players aren’t getting the accolades they deserve when they go for trials abroad because they couldn’t get to be watched on Television like the other leagues.
“We have a lot of great players in the NPFL and there’s no way they would come here and won’t be recognized. The problem is how are we going to see them, how will clubs see them. In Tunisia, all the games I’ve played are on TV. They are being watched anywhere, that is the difference.
You want a Nigerian player to come and do trial before you sign and we know the chances of a player coming on trial to sign is slim because when you’re coming for trial, you devalue yourself and your market value won’t be high, even if you scale through, the contract won’t be good enough. But once they watch you on TV play, the club have no choice but to sign. I think that’s the major problem of the NPFL.
Nigeria league needs to have a TV to televise most of the games if not all and that’s the biggest problem. It’s not really working for our Nigerian players because of this”, he told Sportlens360.
Moses Orkuma currently plays for US Monastir in Tunisia.
