Headmaster Mutiu Adepoju Tips Daughters To Play For D’Tigress‎

EXCLUSIVE By Izuchukwu Okosi:

Former Super Eagles midfielder, Mutiu Adepoju, is licking his lips at the prospect of seeing his two basketball talent daughters play  for D’Tigress – the Nigeria’s national women basketball team, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

‎The La Liga representative in Nigeria who played  for Racing Santander and Real Sociedad, spoke to Completesportsnigeria.com, in glowing terms  about his two  daughters, Ladi and Lola who have taken to the game of basketball.

“I have four daughters; Tinuke, she’s 24 years old and is the first-born, Ladi is 21 and plays basketball at the grassroots level in Spain, then Abby and Lola. I have no son yet,” Adepoju told Completesportsnigeria.com in an exclusive interview.‎

“Ladi and Lola play basketball already, but the decision to represent Nigeria is theirs to make, but I will support them all the way if that’s what they want.

“With the achievements of teams like D’Tigress and hopefully the men’s team D’Tigers, aspiring young athletes would want to represent their country.”

Meanwhile,  Adepoju  commended the Federal Government for the instant reception handed to D’Tigress after winning  the 2017 FIBA Afrobasket in Bamako, Mali.

President Muhamadu Buhari hosted D’Tigress  coached by Sam Vincent before the Federal Executive Council meeting at the Aso Rock on Wednesday .

“I must commend the federal government for the recognition and honour given to these ladies who made Nigeria proud,” Adepoju stated.

“This government has shown great interest in sports and it’s wonderful. Hopefully, the team will now go to the FIBA World Cup in Spain and do us proud, “

President Buhari handed each member of the victorious D’Tigress the sum of N1m and the officials N500,000 each.
