Why Our Scouting Report Is So Valuable to Players and Football Clubs around the World

It's regrettable, hundreds of thousands real talents don't get the chance to be scouted; especially in Africa where the football industry aren't well structured to harnest all there is. Consequently, lots of these rather outstanding talents just rout away like that. They never get the chance to go pro.

It amazes me every time a player performs at under 16 or under 21 world cup and then suddenly attracts interests from top clubs in Europe. The player’s talent was always there while he was in that remote village in Africa, but nobody saw it and no club was ready to sign a player that doesn't have CV and a transfer market value.

It happens every year and those who eventually fail to sign the rather unknown player loose out when the guy suddenly becomes hot cake. This is why I personally think the benefit of having neutral source, such as Masterclass Talent Exhibition (MTE) becomes a valuable asset for both players and clubs in West Africa and around the world.

My Scouting Experience 
I have been on this job all my life and have developed "an eagle eye" that can easily spot a gem among several kids playing out there on the streets. I have gain such level of proficiency over years of practise and experiences with several kind of players

The first thing I look for is the player’s basic skills. How is his handling of the ball when receiving? Does he want the ball and how is his understanding of the game when you consider his movement?

Special skills is another interesting factor which could be if the player has got two good feet’s or has got quick feet. Other abilities you pay attention to is his level of passing in general – is he comfortable on the ball, under pressure and does he hit the ball with power and precision when needed? Different skill set is required for different position as a goallkeeper, defender, defensive midfielder, attacking midfielder and Striker.

All players have talent, but their talent might only be suited for the lower leagues. To witness all these different players during my learning process as a scout made me understand and realize what was required to play at the different levels in football.

As a Scout I learn how to do SWOT analysis of any talent I see. What are the player's Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Threat. Some players can have ball skills, but very bad attitude off the pitch, that might be a great threat to their career.
