Freetown — Popular Swedish agent, Patrick Mork will arrive in Freetown today (Thursday) together with four other officials from Sweden, United States of America and Israel. Among the four officials are Swedish premier league club AIK Solna director, Jeorge Andersson and the club's chief scout, Jorn Wesstramt.
The delegation also includes Israeli-born FIFA agent, Sharon Halabi and Brian Gavin Wilkinsson from US Major League Soccer side Portland Timber. The officials are expected to witness a three-day talent pool factory tournament which is hosted by Sierra Leonean FIFA agent, Chernor Musa Jalloh.
The tournament will be played at the Sierra Leone Football Association academy ground and according to Jalloh, it will be an open challenge and will attract players from all premier league clubs in the country including non-division players.
He said: "This is a big opportunity for young players to be part of this tournament because if you prove outstanding and attract the eyes of these officials, definitely you will have the opportunity to go for trials."
"This tournament has been helpful to our players; the like of Hassan 'Crespo' Kamara was spotted in this tournament," Jalloh added.
This is not the first visit of Patrick Mork in Sierra Leone. He has been here on several occasions and he is currently the agent of most Sierra Leonean players in Sweden, notably Mohamed and Ibrahim Bangura of Celtic and Bursaspor respectively.
