Turkey, France,Spain, Germany, Italy, France And England Next Port Of Call For Lagos Ikorodu-based Academy
The management of Buruj Sports Academy have confirmed that 12 players will now be needed to complete the squad of 23 ahead of their upcoming tour of European countries like Turkey, Italy, Spain, France, Germany and England before the end of this year.
To fill the remaining slots, young but talented football players between the age 11 and 22 will be considered if they can register on time as they stand the chance of being exposed to the modern rudiments of the game, while they will also be linked for trial opportunity in some well established clubs that can guarantee their welfare, evolution and development in the beautiful game of football.
Those who are desirous of combining their academic works with football training will be offered scholarship if they can prove their mettle to attract pre-contract negotiations, while the more matured ones who are ready to concentrate fully on their pursuit of soccer as professional can also play their way to lucrative contracts.
All the players of the academy who starred at the English Super Cup in Manchester in July this year where they won double titles are still in the United Kingdom holding trials. They are being taken through the rigour’s of training, catching the eyes of clubs agents and scouts after some impressive showing.
The players and officials who won double titles at the recently concluded English Super Cup in Manchester will return to the country from the United Kingdom in two weeks time, to be joined by the new registered players, while training and friendly games will be organised to put them in top shape for the tour.
