Republicans Academy Sets High Target
The Squad At Training INSET: YesterdayChairman Moro (L) with Kasola Mohammed, Al Rayyan Club, Qatar currently on holidays
Republicans FC chairman, Moro Mohammad, is optimistic his side will soon be the conduit to feed the Black Stars.
He told the media that he has put structures in place to realise that dream.
Based in Apantem, near Aburi, the eight-acre facility houses three pitches( two astro, one grass), a dormitory, hostel facility, changing rooms, kitchen, dining hall and a conference room.
He told the media during a facility tour yesterday that “Give me just two years and you will see a massive representation of Republicans in Black Stars.
“We have structures in place, sound coaches, good pitches as you can see for yourselves, nutritionist, teachers etc to nurture the quality talents in camp.
“Our primary focus is to nurture and develop the many soccer talents in the country. We want to continue and complete what Kwame Nkrumah started, hence the name Republicans, again, mark my words very soon, you will see most of the players in the national team.”
So far, he has spent close to $2m in putting up the structure, but I’m doing this expecting nothing in return. I just want to help discover and develop more talents, but if an individual and the corporate world wants to support, why not?. ”
It has a four-member technical team headed by coach Kassim Ocansey, a three man management team, a scout, secretary and a marketing director.
Meanwhile, the team broke camp today and expected to resume after the festive season
