It’s my agent that had me on TransferRoom. He told me that many clubs were using it and that many things were happening on this platform. It’s a really big platform for player visibility, and it’s really good for my level of experience. It’s a platform that will open up great opportunities in the future. I trust the platform for the future.
Moving to a different continent to play professional football seems a rare and unrealistic opportunity for most players, let alone playing in that continent’s top club competition.
Many rely on an agent or club’s limited local network to spend their careers in their home country or neighbouring nations.
But for Malian midfielder Moussa Bagayoko, who had spent his entire professional career in Europe with Turkish and Israeli clubs, he has fulfilled his dream of playing in South America and the continent’s elite competition.
Bagayoko moved from Israel’s FC Ashdod to Venezuelan side Carabobo FC, who are competing in the Copa Libertadores.
The rare cross-continental transfer was made possible by Berlin Sports - Bridge for Talents, who can get direct access to decision makers at more than 650 clubs in over 100 leagues and 60 countries as Trusted Agents on TransferRoom.
“By taking this decision to play in another continent, I'm following my dream,” he says in the video below. “I was looking for a new experience. To play for Carabobo means to play the Copa Libertadores, which is a big South American competition so it’s an exciting new step in my life.
“I played the UEFA Conference league when I was in Israel but the Copa Libertadores is another experience. So everything excited me about coming here, and to play for the club has been a great experience.”
Players can now take control of their own careers and destiny in the transfer market through TransferRoom’s new AgentFinder platform, a free tool which allows professional footballers to match with a verified, Trusted Agent with a proven track record in the leagues they want to play in, from a pool of over 250 of the world’s best agencies.
And the combination of unlocking new opportunities worldwide and working with a Trusted Agency has been a win-win for Bagayoko.
“It’s my agent that had me on TransferRoom. He told me that many clubs were using it and that many things were happening on this platform,” he said.
“It’s a really big platform for player visibility, and it’s really good for my level of experience. It’s a platform that will open up great opportunities in the future. I trust the platform for the future.
Speaking about Berlin Sports - Bridge for Talents, who verified him as their player on TransferRoom, he said: “I’ve worked with many agents since the beginning of my career but with Berlin Sports it’s different.
“They're very different from the other agencies I've worked with. It’s a very serious agency. They are disciplined. It’s a family for me. Since the first day I joined this agency and until today, I feel good, I feel safe. They are always here for me when I have issues and personal problems. It’s like a family for me.”
