Nigerian teenager, Kingsley Michael, has joined French giant, AS Monaco.
The 18 year old Michael who joined another Nigerian, Elderson Echiejile in the club was spotted by a scout of the club during the Gee-Lec Football Academy tournament which took place in Abuja, Nigeria, early this year.
Kingsley Michael plays as a winger on either flank, also gifted with searing pace and an eye for goal which caught the attention of scouts in attendance.
He is now in France to begin training with Monaco youth team, where his progress will be monitored by the first team management.
We hope he will be a good signing for Monaco and a better player for the Nigerian soccer team.
