Nigerian footballers are the most traveled abroad. You can find them almost everywhere on the surface of the earth, even in none football countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Malt, Belarus, Fuji Island, playing all kind of football to eke out a living.

Nigerian footballers, especially the younger one, would almost do anything to play in Europe, because that’s where the action is. The chance to be shown on a world wide television like, Super Sports, ESPN, Sky Sports will make them so popular among fans in their football crazy country. Of course, they’ll make lots of money too and become mega rich.

The competition in Europe is quite stiff. Most European clubs prefer foreign players from South America: Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay… But there are these two clubs in Europe that love Nigerian players and have signed more of them over the years. I’ll tell you how you can connect with the clubs.

 FC .Midtjylland Demark
I can authoritatively tell you this, if Churchill Oliseh recommends you to the Scandinavian club, FC Midtjyland in Demark, you are about 90% sure to sign a contract with the club - unless, Of course, you can’t even kick a ball.

Churchill, the elder brother of former Super Eagles captain, Sunday Oliseh, has a long standing working relationship with the Danish club and had used such connections to sign more than 200 young Nigerian footballers over the years.

FC Midtjyland presently plays in the Danish Super League and has a large football development network of over 100 clubs located in the Western part of Jutland. The chairman, Johnny Rune, having been to Nigeria with Churchill, saw for himself the large deposit of football talents and decided to establish his team’s feeder team – FC Ebedei.

FC Ebedei, which is formerly based in Lagos state has moved to Abeokuta Ogun state and now plays in the Nationwide League. FC Ebedei operates more like an academy and had transferred lots of young footballers such as: Ajilore Oluwafemi, Akeem Agbetu, Adigun Salami, Izunna Uzochukwu, Ifeanyi Emeghara, Stephen Makinwa and most recently, Babatunde Colins.

Although, Churchill who mange FC Ebedei has coaches in charge and scouts that directly recommend players to the feeders team. But as a pushing young footballer, you could make contact with the club and ask for a trial test. You’d not necessarily have to be in the team. Churchill may still transfer you if you are a quality player and meet the specification needed. However, Churchill prefers to deal with ‘free agent players.’

 FC Sheriff Tiraspol, Moldova:
Alex Ebegbune is a player Licensed Agent who has a long business relationship with FC Sheriff Tiraspol in Moldova and even work as a scout for the Eastern European Club.

Victor Gusan, Chairman of FC Sheriff, a former Policeman, always have an eye for young Nigerian Internationals. It has been a good connection for him and with help of these Nigerian footballers Sheriff has dominated Moldovan football since 2001. And the present team manager, Vaaceslav Rusnac, would always tell you that Nigeria perhaps have some of the best quality footballers in the world.

FC Sheriff plays in league Divizia Najionala and has won the league 12 times. So it’s always that you see such small club play in the preliminary stage of UEFA Champions league.

Alex, as he is fondly called, has transferred over 100 Nigerian Internationals to this club and if he recommends you, you’re about 60% sure to sign. Although, Gushan and his Manager, Rusnac, never compromises with quality. Some Nigerian players like Emeke Nwana, Ndidi Anumunu, Mohammed Gabo didn’t scale the club’s trial tests. But Alex had succeeded in signing players like: Isaac Okoronkwo, Chidi Odia, Chiedu Chukwueke, Edward Ananike, Rajak Omotoyossi

Alex usually look out for quality players in the national teams as Golden Eaglets or Flying Eagles as well as young enterprising player from any of national leagues. Contact Alex now +234
