Two Liberian Players in Cape Verde

Two Liberian players on Tuesday, November 23, 2010, accomplished a move from Liberia premier side, Gedi & Son FC to a 2nd Division side, La Paloma FC base in Praia, Cape Verde.

The players, Striker Alex Orville Moore and midfielder Pius Ndefi Kwai signed a season and half deal with the club, with additional incentives based on their performances.

The Liberians are expected to improve the squad during the league with the obligation of finishing 1st or 2nd place for promotion to the 1st division. Striker Alex Orville Moore will use jersey number (80), while his fellow countryman midfielder Puis Ndefi Kwai will wear number (50).  Both players left here in exploration for better soccer lives.

Meanwhile, the players have told this paper that they were comfortable with the blessings of God throughout their trials in Cape Verde. Striker Alex arrived in Cape Verde on May 25, 2010.

There, they underwent three trial outs, before signing with La Paloma FC.  They described Cape Verdian soccer as different from that of Liberia. Also, the players are requesting the FA and diverse clubs presidents to handle soccer as a business, and not something else.

The players succeeded through the efforts of a Liberian soccer promoter, now a United Nations Volunteer Staff and former player of Mighty Electrons, William Pajibo based in Darfu, Sudan.

The Cape Verde Football Authority has mailed Gedi & Son FC, requesting the documents of the two players in keeping with football policies.

At the same time, a young Liberian player has been discovered in South Australia, plying his trade with Salisbury United FC.  The forward was born in Liberia, but moved to Australia during the civil war on a resettlement program.
