The proprietor of Kicker Football Academy in Abuja,Dare Adesomo said that abundant Football talents were wasting in Nigeria

He said that there are a good number of talented footballers around the country, who do not have the opportunity to showcase their talents to the world.

The coach called on members of the public, individuals to encourage young unexposed footballers to develop the sector in the country.

“We started tracing young talents in football in 2022 based on our vision and from there we saw that there are some youths who can play football with proper grooming.

“We have noticed that there are a good number of them who needed just exposure and encouragement, in Nigeria we have talents and talents without exposure will amount to nothing,” he said.

Adesomo said that his vision is to develop young talented footballers through the formation of the football club, adding that there has been gradual progress.

“We have some club sides in Nigeria we are partnering with to help us developed players, putting them together before we can market them abroad.

“I have identified some upcoming players that if they are properly groomed, we as a country will be able to correct some mistakes in the sector,” he said.

He said that the discovered talents from the grassroots would be registered into a full club, to participate fully in the nation’s league.

“My club is not registered in any league in Nigeria. We are still putting our house in order.

“We are still looking for sponsorship and looking for people that would be able to support us, individual, Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) among others.
