Highly respected Israeli agent David Ouziel, who is well known for his strong connection to Nigeria players has played down the hype surrounding Celtic 13 year old boy wonder Karamoko Dembele, who made his U-21 debut few weeks ago.
Ouziel, while paying respect to the talented teen insist that he has seen a lot of his type in Nigeria, in the numerous youth games he has watched whenever he visited the country.
The man who has transferred over nine young Nigerian players who are little known but well talented, insist that from what he has seen since he started working on transferring young Nigerian players. Nigeria has players onthe street, who are better than Dembele.
” I can’t seem to understand the rave behind Karamoko Dembele by the world, especially Nigerians. I have seen a lot of his type on the street in Nigeria, so kill the hype” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” He is good no doubt, but like I told a friend of mine, in Nigeria on the streets on bad playing pitches, not the type Dembele enjoys in Scotland, they are better players in Lagos, Abuja, Porthacourt, Warri, Kaduna, Kano etc.
” I challenge anybody who doubts me to follow me to Nigeria. Look my friend, I have spent time in the country and in Europe, so I know what am saying. They are millions of Dembele on the street in Nigeria, playing football with no boots or facility but yet doing well”.
