The new coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Jose Peseiro rounded up his scouting mission to Ilorin by watching ABS FV against Mighty Jets in a Nigeria National League game.
Peseiro was in Kwara state for the Nigeria Professional Football League game between Kwara United and Sunshine Stars which ended 1-0 in favour of the home team. The idea was to see players with potentials who could fit into his team.
He watched the entire duration of the game alongside his assistance but it was the next day that he openly showed his excitement at full whistle as he spoke with two players from ABS in Benjamin Frederick and Mohammed Ibrahim.
The coach had a word with the duo and told the management of the team that he will recommend them to the coach of the CHAN team Salisu Yusuf when preparation for the qualifiers for the next CHAN begins.
Frederick was a part of Ladan Bosso U20 team that won the WAFU U20 Championship but he didn’t get to play. The Simoiben Academy graduate is said to be on the radar of teams from France, Belgium and Spain.
