Speaking about the impending trials, the academy’s coat Agrippa Guti said:
I think this is quite for these youngsters. Their attitude and level of professionalism was outstanding and as a result, they were picked by these teams. I’m sure this could be the beginning of big things in their careers. The boys will be leaving early next year either in February or March.
As City Football Academy we are really proud of these boys and we are confident they will go represent us and the country well. They are a group of young and talented footballers.
