Proprietor of FC Ifeanyi Ubah, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, has explained the reason behind the importation of Brazilians, Ivoirians and Bulgarian to the country to beef up his side ahead of the 2015/16 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

According to the billionaire businessman, he brought the foreigners to his side to show the world that Nigeria is safe and to make the country the Mecca of football on the continent. He explained that the players he brought from Brazil are not known names but young and talented players who would be developed and probably sell them to other clubs possibly outside the continent.

“The Brazilian players that we brought in are not known names in Brazilian Football. We brought them to as a part of our preparation for the 2015/16 Glo Premier League season,” Dr Ubah said, adding:

“We brought the foreigners as a part of our vision to revolutionize our league. It is our intension to make transform the Nigerian league and make it one of the best not only on the continent but globally.

“We also want to tell the world that Nigeria is safe to stay and work. By bringing in the players it is a good way of letting the world know that people from different parts of the world can come here and play just like any other part of the world.

“Meanwhile, the players we brought in are not known names in Brazilian football and they are young. We will develop them and possibly sell them if they wish to move to other clubs either within the country, continent or outside the continent.

“It is our hope to make Nigerian League a Mecca of sort in terms of football on the continent and in the world. So, by bringing in the foreign players into our league, we are trying to leave with our vision to revolutionise the league.”
