Agali: NPFL Stars Not Good Enough To Play For Super Eagles

Former Super Eagles forward Victor Agali says players in the Nigeria Professional Football League are not good enough to play for the team.

Head coach of the team, Gernot Rohr has been widely criticised for neglecting players in the domestic league since he took charge of the team in 2016.

But Agali believes NPFL stars are not good enough to compete with their counterpart.

“It’s disheartening with the level of our local league considering what Nigeria has achieved globally in football,” Agali said in a radio interview.

“People must know that the national team is based on results and this is what everybody is looking forward to.

“Rohr cannot be coaching teams in the league, but what he needs to do is to attend matches and pencil down players who he feels can compete with those already in the team.

“He cannot just be inviting players who cannot match those already in the team.”

  • Well said victor Agali. They have a useless league and they want to compete 

  • V. Agali i hope u stand gidigbam for ground….
    This statement u just made is bitter to the ears of the cabals….

    They will start chasing and firing at u now…..

  • Truth, they say, is bitter. But it is even more bitter to hide the truth, hoping that the contrary situation is rather true. This is when someone slips into delusion, needing the services of a headshrink to knock him back to reality. 

    Agali, thanks for saying it as it is. In sane societies those in authority will wake up from deep slumber to take corrective steps. But in Nigeria? People will most likely call for the head of the truth bearer. 

    I weep. 

  • Oga please you are here confusing everyone. No one is asking Rohr to coach our league. At least attend games to see players that can give the current players a run for there money. Are you saying players in your academy can’t compete with some of our players. is it until they cross the Atlantic before they are considered eagles material.

    • How can players in his academy compete in the Super Eagles? No one scouts for senior national team players in academies. abi na me dey misunderstand you…

      • Of course no one will go to the academy to scout for players. What am saying in a nut shell is he is not scouting for players in the local league. But if proper scouting is done, he will unearth players who are qualified for the national team. I forgot Agali was once a scout for him, surprised he is condemning a league he came out from

    Agali who was once the coach of Delta Force in the local league and now a national team scout has spoken, someone who knows absolutely nothing about the league is arguing….LMAO. When our local players start walking straight into the 1st team of clubs like Zamalek, Esperance, Al-Ahly, Kaizer Cheifs, Mamelodi Sundows, Orlando Pirates and Raja/Wydad Casablanca here in Africa (not even Europe) or when they start getting to the semifinals of the CAFCL and CAFCC year-in-year-out, proving that they are better than their mates here on the African continent, then we will start believing that they are better than the current fringe players of the SE, not to even talk about the regular SE players.

  • Wow victor Agali that only coached for 2 games and was fired, is now someone who can speak about the league. what a shame. Didn’t even have to search further and waste my time. Does he have a UEFA licence too

  • Dr. Drey 11 months ago

    Nigerians will rather listen to a Victor Agali who has coached even for 1 minute in the Nigerian league than listen to people who know absolute zero about the league. At least Agali he owns a football academy there in Nigeria, has coached AS Racines in Lagos for a couple of seasons before moving to Delta force and currently doing his UEFA coaching badges in Germany and as such has 1st hand experience of the league as a player and as a coach.

    Meanwhile former MFM FC player Ifeanyi Ifeanyi who now plays in Uzebkistan has this to say “….As for the training at his current club in Uzbekistan, Ifeanyi said the NPFL was worlds behind: “Here there are programs for each day. You hardly see teams go to the gym in the NPFL, but here you go to the gym. There are programs for only the strikers, programs for only the midfielders, programs for the defenders and the goalkeepers. Every department has their special training programs. It’s all about tactical training, quick feet and even the balls we use here are different. There are no facilities in the NPFL, but here there are a lot of facilities and equipment to train with. You improve more with the facilities and equipment than when you have no equipment. And it is all natural grass pitch, not artifical….”….Culled from his interview with Collin Udoh of ESPN. Imagine this is UZBEKISTAN league….we have not even talked of Belgium, Greece or Scandinavia leagues and some people argue NPFL players are better the current SE players….LMAO
