    NPFL to Tanzania? and these are the type of players they force on super Eagles coaches? Then we don’t have a league.

      Simba is not a small club besides everyone mustn’t play in Europe.
      Brazil have players in Bolivia and Mexican leagues too,it happens,the young man is happy with the move that’s what matters,it’s an improvement from where he was and hopefully something better comes.
      Life is about movement,some are fast whereas some are slow,what matters is seeing yourself better than where you was,only then you are seen as making a progress.
