We are coming for the “New Mohamed Kallon” – Andreas Goller
Italian Sports Manager and entrepreneur and owner of Flashlight Agency, Andreas Goller has said ahead of his visit to Sierra Leone that they are coming to unearth the “New Mohamed Kallon”.
Goller and his partners will be arriving in Freetown on the 17th October 2012 under the auspices of the pragmatic football administrator and SLFA Presidential hopeful Madam Isha Johansen to scout for young and budding talents.
They will be traversing the length and breadth of the country to watch youth teams in a football clinic hosted by Madam Johansen in Bo, Makeni, and Freetown.
He has worked with two world champions Italian and Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero and former Inter Milan, Manchester United and Arsenal French defender Mikael Silvestre.
In 2008 Andreas Goller’s Flashlight agency took over the commercialization of Italians Football World Champion and FC Bayern Munich striker Luca Toni.
His partner Claudio Vigorelli Claudia Vigorella, a very influential player agent in Europe, has worked with African stars like Samuel Eto’o and former Inter-Milan star Mohamed Kallon. Claudio facilitated the mega-million Euros move of Samuel Eto’o to his current employers in Eastern Europe Anzhi Makhachkala.
Their decision to come to Sierra Leone was prompted by the explosive pace and immaculate talent they saw in an FC Johansen player currently at Manchester City Football Club, George Davies aka Kweku.
According to Madam Johansen, they asked about Kweku and initiated discussions regarding his future, “but I told them that there is more of what you need to see in the country where Kweku emanates from,” she said.
Goller will be watching a total of 18 teams from Kambia, Pujehun, Kenema, Makeni, Bo, Moyamba, and Freetown.
It is hoped that the talents on display will impress Goller and his team of agents as they look to unearth the “New Mohamed Kallon”.
