Former Super Eagles captain Austin Jay Jay Okocha has admitted that he prefers watching the European leagues to the Nigeria Professional Football League.

Okocha made this declaration during the English Premier League trophy tour in Nairobi, Kenya.

The former Bolton Wanderers midfielder said the NPFL need to upgrade its standard to attract quality sponsors.

He urged the NPFL board to tap from the Europeans and make improvements where needed.

“I don’t think I’d watch the Nigerian League if there is a Premier League match on television, that is if I am being honest, because the Premier League is more attractive,” he stated.

“We need to go back to the drawing board and give ourselves time and put something together that will make our leagues attractive.”
