football stars in a country so rich in football
talents waiting to be harnessed top on the
priority list. West Ham are known to have one of
the best academies in the world having produced
players like Sir Trevor Brooking, Frank Lampard,
Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick to mention a few

and Okocha just begun and we believe this talent
hunt will help us achieve our goal".
