“Throughout this talent identification course, the rows of new scouts who attended the day had the opportunity to gain comprehensive exposure and knowledge about the duties of a ‘talent scout’. “What is for sure I believe all participants in this course have received progressive and proactive training and instruction where they have been exposed how to prepare more comprehensive and detailed reporting. “FAM is working to open up a new platform to the talent identification industry where this field is not the same as coaching and becomes something new for all of us. “Yet I am confident that the rise of football talent search in every state in the country will help FAM to continue to search for new soccer stars in order to achieve the long-term goals of the national football,” said Mohd Joeha.
