"Now back from Wolfsburg, Germany, where I served as an adviser and a negotiator for Synergy Ultimate Strikers Football Club of Lagos in the transfer of Victor James Osimhen, the highest goal scorer of the last FIFA U-17 World Cup."

"It was a tough but decent negotiation, on my side were five other great individuals and collectively we have advised Victor and his family to see another club despite the fact that Wolfsburg's offer was very tempting.

"At 36 Lion Football Club, our core concept is a better future for every young man we are involve with. Victor’s transfer has been narrowed down to Wolfsburg or Arsenal, may God Almighty help us and help the young man choose right," Gaffar disclosed on his Facebook timeline.
