Fuludu believes that the number of years a player has been in the national team should not be the sole criterion for retirement. The former Nigerian midfielder stressed that a player’s physical condition and performance on the field should be the determining factors for retirement. He highlighted that the player’s position on the field and how well they take care of their physical fitness should be considered. Fuludu argued that playing for the national team is not like a civil service job. Instead, he suggested that a player’s fitness level should be the primary consideration when deciding whether they should continue representing the national team.
