Sam Sodje has urged Nigerian players to make every attempt to play in Premier League, the world’s most “prestigious” competition.
Sodje thinks the Premier League gives the Nigerian players home and abroad a strong chance to display their talents.
“The Premier League is the best league and every player in the world not only Nigerian players should work hard in order to get a chance to appear in the League,” Sodje told Brilla FM.
”Not just Nigerian players, I think a lot of footballers at the moments will prefer the Premier League because of the attention and opportunities that come with playing in the league. It’s prestigious.
”The Premier League gives every footballer a platform where people recognize your talent easily and fast, I will advise every player to come to play in the premier league”.
The 41-year-old centre-back spent two years with Reading after joining the side in January 2006 before he moved to Charlton Athletic.
He also played for Skoda Xanthi, Notts County and Portsmouth before he ended his professional career in 2013.
Sodje, born in England, made his debut for the Nigeria national team against Romania in November 2005 and had four caps for the West African side.
