Senegal and Ivory Coast are “miles ahead” of Nigeria in terms of producing top football stars because while they keep developing and improving the academy system, Nigeria lacks a proper system.

He argues that players from football academies in Senegal and Ivory Coast are more likely to play for top sides whereas home grown Nigerian players get overlooked.
