Organisers of the just Thomas Adewumi Sports Academy International Scouting Program have received tremendous commendations from Gulf United Chief Scout Marcellinus Chukwunyere Anyanwu for putting up what he referred to as one of the best and arguably the most successful talent hunt programme in the history of the country.
Marcelo who supervised the Scouting Program said that he was amazed at talents that are abound in the country.
“I’m totally overwhelmed by what I saw. Highly impressed by the youngsters and I can assure you that most of them are going to get foreign contracts as early as possible.”
He disclosed that Nigeria and UAE have so many peculiarities and he was particularly impressed by the good humanitarian attitude in Nigerians.
“The youngsters showed determination and they exhibited great confidence on the field of play.”
“Players who proved to have the exceptional skills and qualities necessary to succeed were selected.
“We spotted three players. Most of them are going to get clubs abroad because the foreign clubs are always in need of African players especially Nigerians to come and prove their mettle.”
“I commend the brain behind Thomas Adewumi College, Dr Thomas Adewumi for putting in place the world class structure in Oko. He will surely reap his investments in future.
The screening in Oko attracted budding players from four football clubs, as well as players who registered for the talent hunt as individuals.
