Sports agent lures Man City scout to Zim

HARARE - Troubled local sports agency, World Wide Scholarships (WWS), has lured a Manchester City Academy scout to conduct trials in Zimbabwe.

WWS has courted controversy in recent months ranging from embezzlement of funds intended for overseas attachments for aspiring junior sportspersons and allegations of mistreatment of employees.

WWS president Munyadzi Maraire was recently arraigned before the courts facing charges of duping two people of $12 000 in a failed scholarships deal.

As part of their image restoration WWS through its subsidiary, Professional Sports Management Group in conjunction with Concept for Soccer International have invited the Citizens’ senior scout, Steve Potts, to Zimbabwe.

Potts is also the head of goalkeepers for Concept for Soccer International.

“It has been confirmed that Africa Soccer Trials will be hosting a trial session in Zimbabwe from June 21 to 24,” WWS said in a statement.

“The event is set up in two ways: Open trials - players who are not signed by an agent or a part of a Premiership league team; Closed trials - players who have national caps or play professionally who have agent representation.

“The event which will be in Zimbabwe will be an open trials opportunity whereby top players will have their chance to showcase their ability in front of Premiership league scouts from the United Kingdom.”

The registration for the trials are said to be underway and limited places are available.

“Top players from the open trials will receive an invitation to the closed trials event in South Africa from June 28-30.” - Sports Writer
