“But the goal of FC Mavlon remains the development of our players. We are happy that the efforts in bring this team to Europe for a training tour are already yielding fruits. 

“We are very impressed with the cohesion in the play of the team and how they have fully adapted to the weather in Europe.

“The players are no longer jittery or having stage frights. The team have scored 12 goals in their last four games after failing to score in their two games played earlier.

“Scoring 12 goals in your last four games, with a young 15 – year striker accounting for six goals is one of the beautiful stories being told about Nigerian football in Bulgaria.

“Aside Agada, European clubs are equally interested in our other players, even the goal keeper is not left out because he has shown that Nigeria is also good at producing good goalkeepers.
