Enosa in Europe for trials and assessment

Eleven Angels star and one of the youngest players in the premier league, Monty Enosa is currently in Europe for assessment and trials at three different European countries.

Enosa started his assessment a week ago at Akademisk Boldklub Gladsaxe in Copenhagen- Denmark.

Danish second division outfit is currently third in the league with 35 points after 16 rounds of matches. The team has won 11 games, and recorded two draws and two losses.

According to Sisu Sports Management (SSM), a London based Sports Agency facilitating Enosa’s possible move abroad, the 18-year-old will also have a chance to be assessed by teams in Belgium and Sweden.

Sisu’s African representative Suzie Montsho, told Voice Sport in an interview that the free scoring youngster caught the eye of their consultants during a COSAFA Cup tournament held in South Africa last year.

“We were all impressed, and we started following him and ultimately decided to sign him to our agency,” she said.

“We hope that by the end of these assessments Enosa, would have clinched a deal with one of the European teams,” said an optimistic Montsho.

She further said due to his age, the striker has a world of opportunities available in the best leagues around the world.

“Age is an advantage for him. He can still get scholarships to study and play for top universities anywhere across the world. So our goal is not only to look for a professional deal, but also try to get him a scholarship,” revealed Montsho.

Responding to a Voice Sport questionnaire on Wednesday morning, Enosa expressed his gratitude to Sisu Sports Management Agency for availing the opportunity. He said it was humbling to have been spotted among a pool of equally talented young players in the country.

“This is a lifetime opportunity for me to go and show my skills and talent in a more advanced league,” said and excited Enosa.

The magical young goal-poacher was however quick to point out that he’s yet to adapt to Denmark’s icy temperatures.

“I’m still trying to adapt, it’s very cold here. I left a very warm Botswana and arrived in the middle of winter in Denmark. Hopefully I’ll get used to the weather,” he added.

An upbeat Enosa however vowed tighten his boots and ‘dance’ with the ball in the punishing European temperatures, it that’s what it takes to clinch a professional deal. The youngster is expected back in the country at the end of the month.
