Super Eagles’ technical adviser, Jose Peseiro said there is need to have an improved local league to enable Nigerian football move forward and be at par with leagues of the other countries of the world. He told our correspondent Saturday at the Super 6 championship holding at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena (Onikan) Lagos, that he was impressed with the performance of the players but was quick to add that the league needed more improvement to enable the players achieve their full potentials. “I’m really impressed with the quality of football displayed by players of the various teams participating in the Super 6 but I still believe that the league need to be improved more because with improved league, many talented players will be discovered and the league will attract more fans to the stadium”, he stated. According to the Portuguese tactician, Nigeria is blessed with skillful players who have gone out to prove themselves and he is not rulling out inviting some of the players to the national team. “You can see that I came here to see players of the six best teams in the local league and hopefully I will invite two or three of them to the Super Eagles because we’re still in the rebuilding process which when completed will give Nigerians their dream Super Eagles,” he concluded.
Federation Cup: Rangers final ticket excites Ejindu
One man that is on cloud nine over Rangers qualification to play in this year’s Federation Cup final is the club’s United States of America based patron, Benson Ezeomeogo Ejindu (MVP). Ejindu moments after Rangers secured their hard fought 1-0 semi final victory over Plateau United in Ijebu Ode told Catholic Herald Sports that it is great to see the Flying Antelopes land in the final of the nation’s most glamorous football competition. He noted that he is particularly excited because this has been a very difficult season for Rangers. “From relegation battle to FA Cup final…isn’t wonderful?” Ejindu queried, even as he disclosed that he has spoken to the captain of the team. “I have spoken to the captain and congratulated them on this great turn around in the fortune of the club this season…it is surely going to end on a glorious note. And you can see what encouragement can do to a team. When they were almost down and out in the league some of us rallied round the team and today I am happy they not only survived in the league but doing well in the Federation Cup,” Ejindu said.
