My New Appointment, A Victory For Africa Football And Her Youths – Mohammed Babawo


Former captain of the defunct Nigeria Premier league side, JUTH FC of Jos, Babawo Mohammed, has said that his new appointment by RC Lens FC of France as their head of their scouting unit for Africa is worth celebrating but it’s a challenge and a message that he must double his efforts in fishing out great talents not only from Nigeria now, but the mother continent, Africa, at large.

Babawo Mohammed, popularly known as Babawo Lecturer, a name coined out by his admirers during his playing days, told that his appointment by French club, RC Lens FC of France, as their Head of Youth Scouting Department for Africa is a victory for young Africa footballers in this round leather game.

I must thank and commend RC Lens FC of France for giving me the opportunity to dig out hidden talents from this Africa continent of ours blessed with great talents. RC Lens should expect future talents like Japhet Ndoram, George Weah, Samuel Eto’O, Mustapha Hadji, Mohammed Salah,Austin JJ Okocha, Victor Ikpeba, Rigobert Song, Sadio Mane, among many other great talents that the world has enjoyed from Africa and more.”
