Kenya’s U18 forward Duncan Omala has received many offers to choose after ending his time with Mali’s ABM football academy.

According to his agent Ali Olieva, they reached a decision of ending his stay in Mali after the highly rated striker missed on the selected teams from the academy that were going to Europe for further trials.

“ABM sports and sports republic have partnerships with various teams in Europe and the ABM academy in Mali is basically their elite set up in Africa that serves as a conduit to take the young talents to Europe.Omala missed out the opportunity this year despite impressing so much and the option was to wait for the next batch but we all agreed he needed to explore other opportunities,” Olieva said.

“He has learnt a lot in Mali and is now a better player so the stay at Mali was not in vain. He has also gained valuable networks that is very key in professional football,” he added.

“Gor Mahia, Ulinzi stars and Sofapaka had expressed interest in Omala before he travelled to Mali  and even more local clubs have done so since he returned. We also have offers from Sweden and very enticing sports scholarship offer in the US. He is at a good place right now in terms of opportunities we are just taking time to analyse what would be the best for him,” Ali concluded.

Duncan is the young brother to Harambee stars and Gor Mahia forward Benson Omala.
