The Super Eagles defender says it is a good thing that Gulder football competition is exposing new players

Former Nigeria international Tajudeen Disu has said that the contribution of Gulder in sponsoring the 5-A-Side Football tournament is one way the game can grow in the country.

Disu who spoke at the end of the South West zonal final of the competition in Ijebu Ode noted that in no distant time Nigeria will begin to reap from what Gulder is doing at the moment.

"I want to praise the efforts of Gulder in taking up the sponsorship of this competition. The dividends of what they have done will soon begin to manifest.

"I know that majority of the players that have played in previous competitions are now in league clubs and the FUTSAL National Team.

"But I see a situation where more players will start coming up through the competition and it will be good for the country. We need more grassroots tournaments like the Gulder 5-A-Side.

"The Nigeria Breweries should not relent in their efforts to make sure that this competition continues for a very long time.

"I want to also advise that all the good players from this competition should be well monitored so that they can be guided to achieve their aim of playing for the country," Disu said.
