Sports World Africa & Europa S.L. executives are scheduled to arrive in Liberia early next month on a 10-day mission to meet with Mr. George M. Weah, the nation’s chief patron of sports, and local football stakeholders to debate the future of Liberian football.
Ibrahim Traore, the group’s chief executive officer, will be in the nation along with Agudo Carrillo Jesus, the company’s top scout from Spain, Ahmed Diabate, the director of players affairs, and Abi Haidala, the general manager.
The group will meet with various parties while in the nation to determine how their organization can aid in the growth of Liberian football, according to a dispatch from Spain.
The Chief Patron of Sports, President George Manneh Weah, the President of the Republic of Liberia, Mustapha I. Raji, the President of the Liberia Football Association, the Minister of Youth & Sports, D. Zeogar Wilson, and the presidents of the national football teams are among those anticipated to be in attendance.
According to the information, Sports World Africa & Europa S.L. has plans to work with the Liberia Football Association (LFA) to grow the sport there and to facilitate connections between local clubs, coaches, and players and those of other countries with clubs and agents.
Ibrahim Traore, the CEO, claims that this will provide a better platform for exposing Liberian athletes to European leagues and strengthening the local league and the national squad.
African and European Sports World S.L. is managing several African and none non-African players.
Sports World Africa & Europa S.L.’s main objectives are to identify bright young players and future stars for potential signings, to train coaches and technical staff, and to assess the ability of footballers before sending them to Europe for tryouts and potential club signings.
Born in Liberia, CEO Ibrahim Traore left the country as a teenager to the Ivory Coast during the height of the civil war before continuing to Europe.
