A former Super Eagles player, Victor Agali, on Tuesday said that the development of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) was vital to players’ success internationally.

Agali, who made the assertion in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, said that it was the level of organisation of the league that would attract international scouts.

“If we want our players to play in top clubs, then our league has more work to do.

“The managers of NPFL have shown tremendous improvement but they shouldn’t relent.

“International scouts will only select potential players when the environment is conducive, you see scouts going to Brazil and Argentina but they don’t come here.

“If the welfare of the players are perfect, if officiating is 90 per cent okay, then we will see better games, these things are highly important to players’ future outside the country,’’ Agali said.

Agali was a striker during his playing days and he plied his trade at Olympique Marseille, Princess Jegede and Intel Lagos.
