Promise fulfilled

Nigerian youth international Isaac Promise has signed for Turkish first division club Genclerbirligi. I promised there would be interest.

Feyenoord were apparently keen, as well as Auxerre and Sporting Lisbon (where he had been on trial) but the young forward chose for regular first team football out of the gates instead.

Realistically, at a club like Auxerre the player would spend at least his first season on the bench so it makes sense to display the talent, which is no doubt there.

Genclerbirligi, a club from Ancora, get a promising talent. Promise certainly foreshadowed his name with his impressive play at this summers FIFA Youth Tournament in the Netherlands where I happened to have been able to watch him play.

“Turkey was a great football deal and a great financial deal for him and we're sure that we've made the right choice for his future development.” –agent Dan Fletcher

This solidifies the player’s first move from Africa into Europe. There comes now a nervous season of adjustment but as long as Isaac stays focused on his football there is huge upside and eventually an EU work permit for the Premiership.

A good season in Turkey gives Promise Isaac a great chance of a place with the Super Eagles in the 2oo6 World Cup.

While I don't doubt that Isaac Promise did indeed play well at the Fifa Youth World Cup I'm afraid to say that he has been pretty useless for Genclerbirligi so far this season.

I go to almost all the home matches and, despite the good scores out of 10 that the local press give him, I'm sure Gencler would be higher in the league if they had a more experienced player up front.

By the way, Gencler are from Ankara, not Ancora.
