Spanish club RC Celta Vigo has snapped up two teenage Ghanaian brothers from lower-tier side White Wolves FC based in Accra.
White Wolves, an Accra-based fourth-tier club, has won a major double scoop for a football experience with the La Liga outfit.
The brothers have been touted as future superstars with immense talent and potential.
Abdul Samed Sally, 19, is well known in the vibrant Madina football community and has been likened to a young Sadio Mané for his aggression and speed.
Yunus Sally, 18, the youngest amongst the brothers, is a defender, and is also one of the most sought-after talents, as several clubs, including giants Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko SC, are monitoring his development.
The Sally brothers have already landed in Northern Spain to begin training with Celta.
The president of White Wolves FC, Manaf Mendes, has confirmed the news and insists that talks have been positive and geared towards the players’ comprehensive development.
“We’ve had fruitful discussions with our partners in Spain for several months now, and both parties want the best for the boys.” There is no pressure at all.
“This is why Yunus and Samed are currently in Spain to continue their football education which would ensure that the best arrangements would be made in the long term,” as quoted by dailyviewgh.com
The move could pave the way for other lower-division teams, such as the White Wolves, to attract similar interest from major European clubs if they are well-managed and in good standing.
