Bakr Set For Swansea Trial

Bakr Set For Swansea Trial

According to the Trinidad & Tobago Express, defender Radanfah Bakr is set for a week's trial with the Swans.

Bakr has recently been training and playing for Trinidad and Tobago Olympic team in their group phase qualifying games.

He was sent off in the game against the hosts which he was forced to miss the final group game against Cuba, which T & T lost 3-0.

His agent, Mike Berry said Swansea City were eager to attract more Trinidad & Tobago Talent:

'He will be at the club for seven days which will give Swansea sufficient time to assess him. This is a great opportunity for a star of the future to sample life as a professional footballer in the UK at a very progressive club, who are determined to get back to the Premiership, and also to get some tips from established stars like Dennis Lawrence and Jason Scotland which will benefit him tremendously in his career development,'

'Although he is still a young man he has all the attributes both physically and mentally to succeed in the UK once he has established a place in the international set-up. This experience will help him to see at first hand a professional standard he has not experienced so far and will stand him in good stead for the future.

'Roberto Martinez and chief scout Kevin Reeves are very interested in the rapid success of Trinidad and Tobago football in recent years and want to develop an ongoing relationship which is great news for T&T,'


Martinez is certainly investing heavily in young talent .In recent years many Swansea City fans have earmarked the defense for the majority of criticism for poor results. Looking to secure links and first looks at untapped talent is a prime objective of Martinez and the club.

In the recent transfer windows the club's scouting network proved very fruitful bringing the likes of Dorus De Vries, Jason Scotland , Angel Rangel and Ferrie Bodde to the club. Investing time looking at players like Bakr should be a priority for the club. This encompassed with Roberto Martinez's views on the transfer market show a drastic shift in club policy.

We do need another CB and if he is any good then there is no reason for us to reject him. However we don't want any more signings that can talk the talk but not walk the walk. Make sure we look at every thing about the player to make sure he is the right player for us.
