Speaking on Fox Sports’ Santo Sam & Ed program, Viduka said the future looked bleak.

“I honestly think we are going to have some big problems going forward, and we’re already starting to see,” he said.

“After Timmy (Cahill) goes, it’s going to be hard.

“We aren’t producing top quality players anymore.”

Viduka says the gap between the junior levels and the A-League is far too great.

“With this A-League everything is great, we’ve got the showcase, but there’s a big gap from the juniors, and getting there,” he said.

“Before, all the NSL clubs had that set up.”
