Upon arrival in Lithuania, both footballers will train individually for the main time with coaches of the Kauno Žalgiris team, and also pass medical examination before joining the trainings of the team that will start preparing for new season in the beginning of January next year.


According to the Coach Rokas Garastas, he said," Over time, we will try to prepare these players for the main team and we hope that they will strengthen it with their good qualities. 


" These footballers have grown up in a different football culture and environment, so proper orientation and integration with them over time should give our game new colors and opportunities. 


Also the team captain Linas Pilibaitis briefly introduced Abdulgafar and Ugbo to the rest of the players with two Nigerian decent, Philip Otele and Emmanuel David.
