Mutiu Adepoju to mentor students at FCV Gladiator Camp

Ex-Super Eagles midfielder, Mutiu Adepoju, will mentor students at the second FCV Gladiator Camp scheduled for Grange School, Lagos, from April 1 to 5.

Adepoju, who rose from the U-20 national team, Flying Eagles, to the senior team, Super Eagles, with which he attended the 1994 and 1998 FIFA World Cup competitions, spent a great part of his career playing in Spain after starting locally with 3SC and Julius Berger of Lagos.

Looking forward to an exciting time with students at the FCV Gladiator Camp, Adepoju said: “I decided to be part of FCV Gladiator Camp because of the passion I have for youth development and the belief I have in discovering future stars.

“I hope to show them what it takes to be successful through hard work and discipline and take them through my journey as an ex-footballer.”

The one-week training camp is organised by Dynaspro Promotion in collaboration with United Kingdom-based FCV International Football Academy to identify talents among students in Nigeria.

CEO of Dynaspro Promotions, Oluseyi Oyebode, said the decision to organise the camp was borne out of his passion for school sports development.

“Nigeria is a nation blessed with talents in sports but if we don’t discover them early, they will waste and that is why we want to fill this gap by unearthing and nurturing them to stardom.

“The coaches involved and the involvement of Mutiu Adepoju will inspire and help the students to fulfil their potential in football. It is going to be a fun-filled camp, mixed with several activities put in place to mould the participants during their stay,” Oyebode said.

He said that four outstanding students from the camp would be awarded scholarships by the management of FCV International Football Academy, where they are going to combine football with education in the UK.
