The meteoric rise in the transfer of youth footballers from Nigeria to Europe will be legendary in the coming year. On a recent Inspire Football conference held to prepare young players in Lagos Nigeria, CEO GreenHunters Sports International, Benson Chukwueke, estimated €100m (hundred million Euros) in contract will be offered to young Nigerian players in 2016.
The parameter that will see over 200 youngsters transferred to Europe may have been in place already. The responses have been phenomenal since Golden Eaglets won FIFA U17 World Cup back to back in Chile. The victory has opened some unimaginable doors of opportunities in the Europe football transfer market.
It’s no longer in doubt that there is large number of quality football talents scattered across West Africa. Nigeria and Mali may be in special focus, because of their recent accomplishments in FIFA Age-grade tournaments
Big agencies like Stellar Sports Management has signed four players from the victorious Nigeria U17 national team and International Sports Management (ISM) has also taken up to manage the career of ten youth players across the country.
Several Scouts and Player’s intermediaries from UK and Germany recently participated in the Go-Ball Football assessment tournament at the former National Stadium Surulere, where over 20 outstanding talents were discovered.
Thictacka Football Development camp currently going on at former NITEL training school, CAPPA Oshodi has also attracted several scouts from Denmark, Poland and Ukraine. We may see more than 20 quality talents selected from that platform.
YSFON Mock Champions League at the Township School field Owerri Imo State may be another venue where Scouts and Agents are trudging at the moment. We may see more of these kind of assessment tournaments and trial camps in 2016
GreenHunters Sports International is privately assessing players across the country. The plan is to select about 20 exceptional talents and package properly for Europe transfer market in 2016. It is an open assessment, as long as you are confident of your skills and ready to go through our procedures. Call us and lets discuss your interest in the program: +234 809 877 2556..
