“Knowing the tasks ahead, I sought for the services of Manu Garba, the world renowned football coach all over the world, who have eyes to spot talents and develop them. So, we made Manu Garba, who happened to be my brother from the same state, Gombe, as the Technical Director of Mailantarki Care FC.

“The strategy we deployed is that we identified or discovered young talented footballers, we take them to Europe on the invitations of the clubs there. Clubs in Portugal, Denmark and Sweden.

“We take the players to these clubs in Europe to train  at their academies in form of football trials for these clubs and their officials to see the potentials of our players with the possibility of signing contracts with them.

“That is the agreement we made with these European clubs. Some of these clubs were very skeptical, but we assured them that if they can accommodate these players for six months, they will be in better position to sign them or not.

“We also informed them that we will be responsible for the total cost of the players in the six months they will be staying in the aspects of accommodation,  feeding and their insurance as they train with these clubs for six months.

“So, Mailantarki Care FC was still responsible for their expenses in Europe and we are very fortunate that our efforts have started yielding fruits as seven of our players have signed professional contracts with these European clubs.
