Remo Stars grab Ivorien duo



Nigeria National League (NNL) club, Remo Stars have announced the signing of two Ivorians ahead of the 2012/13 season.

The NNL team completed the transfer of Guy Roger Konan and Eric Kouadio this month after both of them passed their medicals and agreed to personal terms with the club.

Kouadio, 18, joined Remo Stars from an amateur club in Cote d'Ivoire.

But Konan, who plays as an attacking midfielder and winger, will play on loan at Remo Stars this season, as he is in line for a move to a French Ligue 1 side.

Konan and Kouadio had to go through test games for three weeks to impress coach Fatai Osho leading up to their being signed for this season's campaign.

Kouadio told the official website of Remo Stars: “I am so happy to be here. When I first arrived I said to myself I have to stay here because I saw the talent here and I hope I can start my career here on a good note.

"Settling down hasn’t been a problem for me as my teammates has helped me to settle down quickly and I can’t wait to start playing.”

However, 21-year-old Konan is looking to hit the ground running by helping Remo Stars challenge for promotion in the second tier.

“It's good to be here, I love the country and hopefully in my stay here I can make my mark by helping the team to achieve its goals,” Konan was quoted as saying.

Both Ivoriens will be available for selection when Remo Stars play hosts to Rising Stars this Sunday on the opening day of the NNL.
