The young keeper was encouraged by then Ambassador George Weah when he met him in 2008 at the Labadi Beach in Accra.

Sakoe also had a one year stint with the U-20 team of Accra Hearts of Oak whilst receiving training from the Ali Jaraa Goalkeepers Academy in Mamprobi Accra training alongside the likes of Sammy Agyei of the Accra Hearts of Oak, Stephen Ahorlu and Joseph Addo who was then part of the Black Satellites 2009 World Cup winning team in Egypt.

Aside playing football, Mark never stopped schooling because education was and remains his big driving force as he waa always encouraged by his father the late Rev. William Rambo Sakoe and mentor Yaw Ampofo Ankrah.

When the opportunity to travel abroad came knocking, Mark landed in Qatar where he grinded out four years in the oil rich Middle East state.

Mark playedvand worked simultaneously during the Qatar Workers Cup in 2015 and 2017 as an outfield right back for Dulsco football club in Doha.

He captained Dulsco to become Champions in 2017 before moving to Turkey for a trials.

Unfortunately whilst in Istanbul, Mark sustained a terrible ankle injury prematurely ended what was a promising football career.

After returning to Ghana in December 2018, he established his own company (MS Group of Companies) with the earnings and injury insurance he made abroad.

Mark moved to Kumasi in the Ashanti region, where, due to his love for football, decided to help the young and upcoming talents get to a level he personally could reach due to injury.

That is how the transition of MS Group of Companies materialised as he added a scouting department called MS Soccer.

On rotational basis, he tours the regions of Ghana to scout for young talented footballers.

The most recent was the hugely successful scouting tournament held in September 2020 at the Kumasi KNUST Paa Joe Park in partnership with Books & Boots Foundation.
