The MVP award winner of the 2019 edition of the Nigeria Professional Football League NPFL/Laliga Under 15 Promises Youth League, Peter Joel of Delta Force FC U-15 side, has left the shores of the country a few nights ago to undergo trials with some LaLiga clubs, AOIFootball.com can confirm.
Speaking exclusively to AOIFootball.com from the departure lounge of the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, the Chairman of the club, Mr. Emmanuel Chidi Okonkwo revealed that LaLiga has made arrangements for the lad to try out with a few clubs in Spain.
“I can confirm that little Peter Joel is traveling to Spain to have trials with a couple of Laliga clubs, said Chidi who accompanied the lad as a foster parent/guardian.
The trip which is part of LaLiga’s technical partnership with the NPFL will see the youngster undergo training sessions with Malaga FC for some days, before embarking on trials with the likes of Valencia and Getafe FC.
It would be recalled that Delta Force FC Under 15 side got the bronze medal of this year’s edition of the competition, and Chidi attributes the achievement to the Delta State Government’s commitment towards sports and football development.
“The achievement of our club is largely as a result of the Government’s resolve to developing football in the state, and sports in general.
“We’re thankful to the Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa led Government for using sports to get our youths off the streets,” Chidi concluded.
