Kehinde Bayo Olanlege, COO of Green Lock Fc, Abuja

Newly established Green Lock Fc has the template to work with players who fall below 20 years, says  Kehinde Bayo -Lanlege, the Chief Operating Officer of the club, reports

According to him, football is a business, especially in the development and transfer of players from one club to another, it is therefore important for Green Lock to focus on the development of young players, who are U -20.

He noted further that Green Lock FC is willing to engage other clubs in transfer of their players in a very transparent manner that will bring a win – win situation to parties involved.

“Our target is to work with the U-20 players. If we are working with the U-20 players, we expect to see a 19 year old because we expect that 19 year old to spend three – four months and then we are going to see him play in a Youth Club for an U-23 team in Europe and then keep developing and then he moves to play International Football,” Bayo-Lanlege said.

“In Football it is business that’s all about transaction. If you have a player you developed at your Academy, FIFA recognises from the age of 12 so if you have a player you developed  in your academy between the ages of 12 and 17 and then we have a friendly match with your team and we like your player, we will approach you; we let you know we are interested in your player.

“We want your player to come to us, we all know about the transfer machine system right; it protects your academy, we all know about the player’s passport right. So you get recognised between the age of 12 and 17 that the player was with you and then he has been with with us from 17 to maybe a year or two years.

“We don’t have plan for any of the player to be with us for more than two years because as soon the player is 18 years, we expect him to be fully ready to move out of the country and to play abroad.

“We will be looking forward to building a scouting system, very very important to us so we can have players moving out and players moving in without any form of controversy,” he said.
