    NLO: A stepping stone to my career – Alhassan

    Current goals scoring sensation in Akwa Utd this season with 10 goals, Ibrahim Alhassan has attributed his rapid development in the round leather game to the experience he gathered while playing in the Nationwide League with Sarduana FC of Kano few years ago.

    Alhassan, who was the only out - field local player in the Super Eagles camp enroute to the ill fated 2-0 loss the team  suffered to the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in an African Nations qualifying games last weekend  has charged the upcoming players not to despite or take for granted their career while playing in the Nationwide league, as he revealed that so many football matches he played for Sarduana FC of Kano state at the grassroot level helped to develop him into a better player, noting further that the league was a stepping stone to his career.

    “ I am glad with my progress in football and i want to say that everything began at the amateur level which is now known as the Nationwide League. I played for Sarduana FC of Kano then. We played a lot of matches amongst the various teams in the state and these games were very helpful in developing me as a better player and i am still developing now as Akwa United and a player that just tasted a feel of the senior national team” Alhassan said.

    “ i will admonish the up coming players, especially the ones currently playing in the Nationwide League not to take what they are being taught lighly, but they should take it very serious and play their football in the Nationwide League with the seriousness it deserves.

    Despite not featuring for Nigeria in the game against South Africa, Alhassan opined that he has learnt more about while in the Super Eagles camp  , while in France where the team two friendly games and in Uyo where the team lost to South Africa.

    “ I have gained more experience in the Super Eagles and learnt more about football playing in the midst of very good players, exhibiting great skills and knowledge of the game and i am very optimistic that this will also be reflected in my game in the Nigeria Professional Football League as the league progresses. However, i cannot deny  the fact that it all began for me at the amateur level, which is now known as Nationwide League.
