And his first impressions were: “well, I haven’t seen so much yet but I believe it’s nice and it’s much more calmer than Sierra Leone and Ghana that I have visited.”

According to Mörk, his visit is to focus mainly on young players mainly 14 to 20 years old who will be looked at and help to develop their talent.

“Over the past, we have succeeded in taking most of the quality players from Africa to Europe, so now we need to focus on the young generation in Gambia that is why I am here after my assistant’s trip.”

GSM, one of the leading agencies in the Nordic Country of Sweden with most of the top players from the Swedish National Team, have taken the leading role in the Scandinavian transfer market for many years.

Patrick has over 28 years of experience in the business and has also great connections in African countries especially in Ghana and Sierra Leone from where he has discovered and brought many talented players over the years to Swedish league.

In Sweden most of these players have developed and later on being transferred to clubs in the best leagues around Europe namely Red Star Belgrade, Istanbul Büyüksehir Belediyespor, Granada CF and KKS Lech Poznań just to name a few.

Meanwhile Michael Kallbäck, who is now CEO of Neverland MGMT, has visited Gambia before as guest of the club and is currently on his second trip.

He was Sports Director at Swedish sides Ängelholms FF and IK Brage before turning his sight into football business.

His company, Neverland MGMT, is a sports agency that focuses on players and club representation within the football industry.

“I am delighted to be back to Gambia, my second home. I very much like the country as I have worked with its players who are talented. I hope this time we can do more for the club and Gambia in general,” Kallbäck said.

Both agents watched the Real de Banjul versus Bakau United in Banjul, and the Wallidan and Banjul United match.
