I can see what’s in it for them, I assume our benefit would be any potential youngsters from west Africa?

This has to be the motivation behind it and a good move. How many players from Africa do we see mentioned having already established themselves in decent European teams, Leipzig and Salzburg seem to do well from there.

Don t see how that can work as they would need a work permit

Perhaps need an arrangement with a Dutch/Belgian club as a bit of a "nursery" for them then.

Seems positive. We get to build our club brand in a good footballing country with decent market, plus access to promising youngsters, whilst they get access to equipment, coaching techniques etc. To get one of the better clubs in West Africa as well is really cool as well.
