Uche Jay Ugwu: Collin Edwin GM Makes Case For Grass-root Football Development In Nigeria

Published

on

Renowned talent developer, Jay Uche, has said that for
Nigeria to stay United as a Nation amongst tribes and religions difference, there is need for the government and private sectors to invest heavily in grassroot football as it would help the Nation regain its pride of place in world football.

The Team manager and gaffer of Lagos based side, Collin Edwin FC, made his feelings known via his social media handle (Facebook) during the Nigeria Super Eagles exploits in the just concluded 2023 African Cup Of Nations in Ivory Coast.

“Since after the first match of the Super Eagles at the ongoing Afcon, I’ve seen Nigerians unite in supporting the team, the excitement across the country has been tremendous, people has momentarily forgotten about the hardships, everybody is looking forward to the next games with hope and excitement and so far the lads has not disappointed”

“ I pray they go all the way and lift the trophy for the sake of the Nigerian fans”


What bothers me is this, since it has become obvious that football is the only factor that guarantees our National Unity, the only thing that makes us feel as one irrespective of our tribes and religions or our political differences, why then does our government not take it seriously, why is it that we at the grassroots where this players are produced suffering? Every player you see at this level started somewhere, an Academy or a grassroots club, yet no support from the government, no support from corporate sponsors”

“we pay through our nose for training facilities, schools has stopped us from using their facilities, even the government owned facilities we pay to use them”


Take a close look at some of the pictures I posted here you will see Bruno Onyemaechi he is currently in this squad playing Afcon, you will see Tijani Samson who has captained our Eaglets and has had 2 caps with the super Eagles, and the others like Onunze Paschal and co that has represented the country at different levels”

“the government should invest more on the grassroots because that’s the foundation,
The FIFA grants doesn’t trickle down”


I must thank Hon Gbajabiamila for the Astro turf mini pitches he has been building within surule, we can do more, we know what’s right some kids are out there this morning playing without a football boot and with an empty stomach and you are there waiting for them to make it to the top so you can start shouting up Nigeria our boys are making us proud, expressing your oratory expertise” he concluded.

Former Barcelona and Valencia Star Lopez Describes Vini Jr as a Growing Challenge for Real Madrid

… Gerard Lopez, Former Barcelona and Valencia Star, Criticizes Vinicius Jr. and Calls Him a Growing Problem for Real Madrid

In a scathing critique, former Barcelona and Valencia star Gerard Lopez has expressed his dissatisfaction with Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr., highlighting the recent controversy surrounding the player.

Lopez argues that the issues witnessed during Sunday’s match against Valencia were a long time coming.

Writing for Sport, Lopez states, “Considering his undeniable talent (arguably one of the most disruptive players in the world alongside Mbappé), the situation Real Madrid finds itself in with Vinicius Jr. has become increasingly unbearable.

His attitude in recent months cannot be tolerated.”

Lopez continues, “The insults he faced in Valencia should not be mixed with the provocative and arrogant demeanor he consistently displays on the field, which has led to an ever-growing list of adversaries, including opponents, referees, and fans. He has become persona non grata in Mallorca, Pamplona, and now Valencia.”

“The player must reconsider his behavior because the consequences will only escalate, potentially resulting in his departure, an outcome that Madrid is no longer ruling out. Given his market value and impact on the game, I see a player swap with Mbappé as the only viable solution.

Such a move would benefit both clubs.

PSG would acquire a disruptive player on par with Mbappé, without the internal issues he generates at the French club, while Madrid would see Florentino’s dream come true.”

Lopez emphasizes, “The incident in Valencia has reached a breaking point in terms of provocation. Although the insults from the stands are unjustifiable, they have always existed and will continue to exist in the world of football. Let’s not dwell on racist insults, which are condemnable.”

“Nobody appreciates any form of insult, but it is a part of everyday life in all levels of football. Coaches, referees, and others are not exempt from experiencing it. We have all faced such situations at some point.”

“Vinicius is not unique; he is not an isolated case. This is a widespread problem. However, what should not be expected is responding to these insults with provocations or contempt for the crowd, as it only exacerbates existing tensions. It adds fuel to the fire, leading to a multiplication of insults.”

Lopez concludes, “The team’s overall performance suffers when the spotlight is solely on the Brazilian. Madrid’s defeats away from the Bernabéu often coincide with Vinicius’s controversies. Defeats at Son Moix, Montilivi, and Mestalla align with matches where Vinicius has been at the center of attention and controversy. Madrid must contemplate their next steps regarding Vinicius and decide on the appropriate course of action for the player.”
