He said: “This season we decided that even if you are a Messi or Ronaldo, you have to touch the ball in Nigeria. We have insisted that who ever must play for us must touch the ball and after they must have gone through the trials then we will determine who will be signed.”
“If you agree with me, Ifeanyi Ubah (club owner) is someone that goes for near perfection, we know only God is perfect, we try to put finesse in anything we do. We don’t go for little measures, we aim so high.
“As it is, out target is to bring good football into Nigeria and it is an opportunity for anyone who will be playing with them to learn from them.
He also hailed the League Management Company’s support of the club and its ambitions.
Speaking to a Naij.com sports the chairman said the players will be fully paid their salaries without any issues. He also said the club has an agreement with English club West Ham United and a Brazilian club which involves the transfers of players amongst other logistics.
He said: “We have an agreement with West Ham an another Brazilian club, the idea is to have Brazilians play in Nigeria and naturally Brazilians will be interested in our league.”
On how much the players will earn, he said: “Your pay will depend on what you play.”
The team owned by business mogul Ifeanyi Ubah ended in the 11th position last season as they could only manage 50 points from 38 games.
