Speaking with www brila.net, Fuludu also added that players who play regularly for their clubs in the league should be considered by scouts of the Eagles, while also adding experience to the majority of the players who also play their trade abroad.
“As usual, the coach will do his best we have scouts all over the place and the bulk of the team is in Europe but we must also get our home based players, at least some of them to be part of the team”
Such a move will make our league to grow and encourage the players to do well for themselves”.
