FIFA Licensed Agent Yusuf Garuba and A His Foreign Partner
On a Scouting Program in Nigeria
Founder and Chief Executive Officer (C.E.O) of a non-league side, YG Football Club and Y.G Football Agency, Yusuf Garba has given credits to the organizers of the Ikeja Divisional League.

The Plateau born coach said: "The whole idea of playing Ikeja League is to keep growing and move to higher level because the league is an experience and exposure for my players.

"We're trying our best in the Ikeja Divisional League, as YG FC wants to end the season top of the log.

"I must commend the Ikeja League board for the standard they have set for the league as there's nothing like win at home syndrome as all teams are given equal treatment and there's fairness in the officiating."

On why he chose to run his own football club despite him been a certified intermediary/agent,  "I decided to run my own team so I could monitor my players performance under my own watch to be able to know when they are matured enough to go for football trials because of the several disappointment in the past. 

"If you want to run a soccer academy professionally you have right players, they must be ready mentally and physically. If you run an academy for a year without transferring one or two players locally or internationally then it shows you are at a loss, that is why you must have good and marketable players that can compete globally in the football world. They must learn quickly and improve their football abilities.

"I scout players from the length and breadth of Nigeria as I have talents discovered as far as Jos, Jigawa, Kano, Kaduna, Katsina, Enugu, Ebonyi, Imo and some in Lagos also we have players from Abeokuta, Oyo State, we have about 40 - 45 players in our camp and we try as much as possible to make them comfortable."

On the challenges faced by grass-root club owners, "We have a lot to change in our football industry. It's not that we don't have the capacity doing it well rather we're not doing enough harnessing these talents from the nooks and crannies of Nigeria. 

"Most of our Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) clubs are getting it wrong, they are just spending the money and not really account for the investment. Little wonder there is no evidence of what was made as profit to its investor, government."

The YG FC boss further asked its fans to keep faith in the club.

"The feedback and comments we get from our fans via our social media platforms have been encouraging, we don't even know some of them but we really appreciate them for their love and support, we would do our best not to let them down."
