‘This Is A Huge Win For Remo Stars’ –Eguavoen Reacts To Akinsanmiro’s Inter Move

Former Super Eagles coach Austin Eguavoen has congratulated Ebenezer Akinsanmiro after his transfer to Inter Milan this winter transfer window.

Recall that the Nigerian midfielder joined Inter Milan from the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Remo Stars.

The 18 year old penned a four year deal with the club and is expected to play for the youth team.

Reacting to the move via his official twitter account, the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations winner praised Remo Stars for getting the deal done.

“Congratulations to Ebenezer Akinsanmiro and the entire Remo Management and staff. This is a huge win for Remo Stars and Nigerian Football. The kind of moves we love to see. More of this!,” he Tweeted.

Akinsanmiro is an academy product of Remo Stars and participated in the NPFL during the 2021/22 season.

He also played for the academy team, Beyond Limits in the Creative Championship and Viareggio Cup World Football Tournament.

He has reportedly been on the list of talents scouted by the Nerazurri (blue-black).

Inter Milan are currently second in the Serie A standings with a total of 40 points from 20 games.

    Absolutely Cerezo,moves like this gladdens our heart.We need more players from the domestic league moving to mainstream Europe.
    Meanwhile,a bit astonishing talent of this level wasn’t scouted by our under20 crew.It shows the players that represents us in age groups may not be the best on ground.Proper scouting should be encouraged by the football authorities to get the best Osimhen’s for the future.
    Good-luck Akinsanmiro!..

    • A major, major point you’ve made there. How come Bosso missed this talent during his scouting while Nerazzuri scouts from far Italy spotted him?

      The same goes for some of the biggest names in the SE (past and present) that Nigeria underage team handlers failed to discover but foreign leagues did (And to give credit to whom it’s due, this also underlines the fact Amunike was transparent in his U17 team scouting in 2014/15 as he’s got a quite a number of graduates into the SE today).

      I think herein lies the answer to the puzzle and disequilibrium on the fact that while there’s abundance of talents at home, Nigeria has not had real success at the CHAN and CAF club competitions. Because it’s typically cash and carry plus Abuja and politicians lists that get a shoo in in the hope of a potential move to Europe. But the last minute imported names often fade into oblivion as soon as the local CAF tournament is over.

        He played in a tournament which involved the your team of Remo stars and other youth teams from other countries……And that’s where they discovered him..

      • Mr Kel you are very correct with the fact that our underage coaches do not really do a thorough job while scouting for talents because they are corrupt but i do not agree with the fact that our inability to qualify for the Olympics, World cup, and now Chan is as a result of the same corruption. The main reason we are doing very badly recently is because we are not developing our football like we used to do yesteryears. We used to have Principals cup and Academicals cup for secondary schools, i remember a certain Ndubisi Okosiemen, Friday Elaho Goalkeeper Agbonavbare, Osaro Obobaifo etc were all invited to the flying eagles camp after winning the principals cup, okosieme made the World cup that year while Elaho and others made the u20 world cup two years later. If we truely want to do well in every competion we have to go back to the development of our football from Primary, Secondary and Tertiary institutions.

      Bosso team vs Ugbade team u17 team it won’t surprise me to see the u17 wallop Bosso u20. Peseiro witnessed the two teams but he couldn’t hide away from the noticing Ugbade’s team brilliance who’s team only just resumed camp a week ago unlike the latter who’s been in camp 2 weeks earlier. Ugbade and Manu shares the same honest philosophy so I see a better u17 at the junior afcon and WC than the u20 team led by Bosso even though I wish him well.

      I second it … Mere knowing dat he’s still part of our football governing body dey pain me ….. I DNT wnt to hear anytin abt him

  • This is the right route for NPFL players get European exposure and then play your way for SE spot.. I firmly believe any player who can not make it out of the NPFL is not good enough for Super Eagles.
