Golden Eaglets’ scouting coach, Bunmi Haruna, popularly known as Bunmi Blair, has been offered a scouting job by Chelsea FC of England and their partner Rexona-Nigeria.
Bunmi, a popular sports presenter and On-Air-Personality (OAP) with Nigeria Info Abuja, has put pen to paper alongside NPFL champion, Plateau United coach, Kennedy Boboye and former youth international, Jide Oguntuase.
The coaches are to help select players for an all-expense paid trip to train and play with Chelsea Football stars in London later this year.
Bunmi, in a letter confirming his appointment which was made available to AOIFootball.com from Unilever Nigeria Plc partly reads:
“Dear Bunmi, many thanks for accepting to be a part of the Rexona Africa XI Street to Stamford Faculty, as we are set to give our consumers a lifetime experience with Chelsea.”
The campaign tagged: “Rexona Street to Stamford” is a national competition from which 3 lucky Nigerian representatives will be selected to be part of an Africa XI team, to train and play with the Chelsea Football stars at their home in London, UK.
100 players selected from different parts of Nigeria on Saturday, July 14th 2018, converged at the National Stadium, Lagos to kick-start a week-long selection process which will see three lucky Nigerians emerge to join their counterparts from other parts of Africa for a Stamford experience.
